    Date filters

    Yohay Weisblatt


      I'm very new to Qlik Sense  (I'm using Qlik Sense Desktop)

      I have data with Dates columns with the format of dd/m/yyyy hh:mm (e.g. 23/1/2016 23:25)

      Is there a way with not much scripting to add filters on this column that will show only -" Today's data", "This week's data", "This year's data" ?

      I was searching the community and saw some syntax that should be relevant but couldn't incorporate it successfully .

      I tried to add a filter object with the syntax =[my date column] =Date(Today()-30)  and so but it didnt seems to work

          Hi Yohay,


          What exactly is it that you're looking to do?


          If you're just looking to create filters in the front end of the app. A super easy way to do this would be to create 3 filter panes on your sheet:

          1. Floor(Date) ; this will return just the date field ex. 2018/4/30
          2. Week(Date) ; this will return the week which the date is in
          3. Year(Date) ; this will return the year

          And then the user looking at the app can simply select the year, week or date they wish to see.
