Dynamic Date Time-period malfunction

Hi Support,


I hope you well.

I am trying to use dynamic date function to select a range of current date minus 1 day and current date minus 1 month.

for some reason yellowfin does not allow me to select a different time period for between. If I change one do day then the other one gets changed to day automatically which isn't what I want.

Hi Tshepiso,

Thanks for reaching out to support with your issue.

I did some testing and can see what you mean - the date granularity automatically "syncs" when changing one of the "between" operands on the Dynamic Date Filter option. I could not set this function to a value like "Between current date - 1 month" and "current date - 1 day."

A couple of options going forward -

A. We can submit a task to developers to look into possibly including this in a future version;

B. In the meantime you could try the workaround of using the same granularity for the filter e.g. "between current date - 90 days"

C. You could also create two dynamic date filters, each with the different date granularity -

Let me know if there's a way you'd like to proceed here.

Thanks,

Hi Eric,


Thanks for getting back to me.


We used option c as a workaround but what we wanted was for you to go with option a, including this in a future version, that will be best.
