Date Search


The Date Search widget allows filtering of assets in view widgets using date ranges present in metadata.


Main Features

  • Date Frequencies: Available dates ranges are split into clickable chart tiles that shows bars for the relative numbers of assets within each range. Hover tooltips will show the start and end dates for each tile. Clicking on a date range tile will add another row of ranges, further breaking the distribution of date ranges down to a finer degree.


  • Clearing Rows: Clicking the Clear Row button, in the upper right of the widget, removes the lowermost row of date range tiles.



Widget Configuration

  • The date search widget can be configured to use any available field whose UI Element is set to "Date".
  • Use well known date ranges?: This checkbox will change the range of dates displayed from a dynamic view, based on available data, to a display that has more regular set intervals.
