Using Date and Duration Fields in an Advanced Search

Updated 2 years ago by dustin keir

When you include date fields in an Advanced Search, you have a number of options to refine the search and to make the search reusable in different contexts.
  • Rolling Date Ranges – Select a rolling date range to specify a generic date range, for example Today or This Month, instead of specific dates in your searches. These date ranges make it easier to reuse searches in future dates when you retrieve saved searches from the search catalog.

  • Year-less Searches – Use the Ignore Year checkbox to search for a date range independent of the year. This option gives you the option to search for dates, like birthdays, where the year may be less important in some contexts.
When you include duration fields in an Advanced Search, you have a number of options to determine how the search is performed.
  • Return everything that equals – This option returns all entries for which the duration field matches the specified number of years on the current date.

  • Return everything that is between – This option allows you to specify two values, and returns all entries for which the duration field value is between the specified ears on the current date.

  • Return everything that will be – This option allows you to enter a date or date range other than the current date. The search returns all entries for which the duration field value matches the specified number of years on or within the selected date or date range.
