How to add additional Date Ranges to a Datablock

With most Visualization Types and Datablocks, you can add up to 6 Date Ranges. From there you can switch between the Date Ranges to view your data over different time periods. Each Datablock has a primary Date Range which is designated by the (1) to the left of the Date Range name within the Properties Panel. 

Use the instructions below to add additional Date Ranges to your Datablocks.

1
 Choose "Databoards" in the top menu bar and select your desired Databoard
2
 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
3
 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.

4
 Add intervals from the dropdown list, such as “Week to date” and “Month to date."

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.
