Setting a Time Field Filter

When you select a time attribute for a chart, you can filter the time range displayed on the chart.

To set a time range for a time field filter:

  1. Click the filter icon () on the chart or dashboard or select Filters from the chart menu (). The dashboard-level filter icon is available only when all the charts are from the same data source.

    The Filters sidebar appears.

  2. Click . Three tabs appear allowing you to select a row-level filter, a group filter, or a saved filter.

  3. Select Row and then select a time field you want to use from the list. The Time Range sidebar appears.

    The Time Range sidebar has two tabs: Range and Keysets. Use either tab to specify the filter details for the time attribute.

  4. On the Range tab, use the From and To boxes to specify the time range for the filter. You can set the range in static time or dynamic time, or use preset ranges provided with Zoomdata.

    • Select Static Time or Dynamic Time in the fx drop-down menu.

      If you select Static Time, the From and To boxes are filled with default dates and times. Click in the boxes to select specific from and to times:

      If you select Dynamic Time, the From and To boxes are filled with Start of data and End of data automatically. Click in the Condition boxes to select different dynamic from and to times:

    • Alternatively, click to fill the From and To boxes with predefined time ranges provided by Zoomdata:

      Use the filter box at the top of the presets list to locate the preset setting you want. Descriptions of each of the preset options are provided in Preset Time Ranges.

  5. Alternatively, select a keyset on the Keysets tab to use for the filter. See Using Keysets.

  6. After the filter specifics have been specified, click Apply. If you create the filter at the dashboard level, it is applied to all the charts in the dashboard. Otherwise, it is applied only to the selected (active) chart.
