Adding and Modifying Additional Date Ranges

To display your data the way you like, you will need to choose a data source, a metric and a date range.

On (almost) every datablock, you have the option to add additional date ranges. Additional intervals give you the ability to switch the date range for the selected metric to drill down your KPIs. Each datablock has the main interval (the primary date range for data visualization) and the option to add additional intervals.

Use the instructions below to add additional date ranges to your datablocks.

Let’s try it out!

1
 Log in to the Databox web application
2
 Choose "Databoards" in the top menu bar and select your desired Databoard
3
 Hover over the Databoard you would like to focus on and click on the " Edit" icon. This will open the Databox layout designer where you can add and edit additional date range
4
 Click on your desired datablock (A)  so that the Properties panel appears(B) on the right hand side of your screen. Under the “Additional intervals” (C) field click on “+” button (D) next to the input field.

5
 Add intervals from the dropdown list, such as “week to date” and “month to date,” and don't worry, all changes will be saved automatically.

Databox supports a wide selection of predefined date ranges:  Today (1D), Last 24 hours (24H), Yesterday (-1D), Week to date (WTD), Last 7 days (7D), Last 14 days (14D), Month to date (MTD), Last 30 days (30D), Last Month (-1M), Quarter to date (QTD), Year to date (YTD), Year (1Y) and All time

For specific metrics or data sources it can occur that a date range is missing. This means that a date range is not supported by default. Please contact our support team if you have such a use case and we will investigate if your missing date range is possible to add.

Once you have added your additional date ranges, you can easily switch between them by clicking on the datablock title arrow. 

PRO TIP: On a datablock table, just tap anywhere on the table as a shortcut to change the date range.
