Date Filter Parameters

2022/01/24 • 3 min. to read
For date filters, parameters can be specified in square brackets [ ], which will be converted or calculated when the evaluation is executed. Basically, the parameters are date formulas. However, the English parameters are always used, e.g.: D (Day). The advantage over date formulas is that several date values (e.g. a date interval) can be specified combined in one filter. The parameters are calculated based on the Work Date. In evaluations, the calculation can additionally be controlled via the Date Filter Calc. Formula field. Date filter parameters can be used, for example, to set up evaluations where the date filter is automatically set to the current month when the evaluation is executed. The following parameters are available:
  • D Day
  • WD Weekday
  • W Week
  • M Month
  • Q Quarter
  • Y Year
  • C meaning 'current' and can be specified as a prefix of a parameter
A list of date filter parameter examples can be opened via the lookup of the date filter field.


The following table shows some examples of parameter combinations and their results when the Work Date or the Date Filter Calc. Date is set to 06/30/2020.
