You can use the date range filters to show a task or a Box scheduled in a specified period of time.

You will find the date range filters in the following modules:

  • Overview
  • Gantt
  • Risks

When you filter by the date range using the Overview module, the Box start and end dates will be used. When you apply the filter in one of the modules, the Start and End Dates presented on the timeline for the tasks will be used (the field mapping is not relevant in the date range filters).

Date range filter affects only the module in which you have applied it.

Filtering using dates

Use the calendar picker to set the date range. Then, click the "Today" button to select the current date. To clear the date, use the "x" button.

  • If any part of the Box/Task duration fits between start/end date filters, a task is found (partial overlap is sufficient).

  • Using only the start date means everything from that date onwards meets the criteria (once again, the partial overlap is sufficient).
  • Using only the end date means everything preceding that date meets the criteria (once again, the partial overlap is sufficient).

When you apply a filter, all tasks scheduled beyond the defined period will be filtered out. 

Your filter remains active even when you switch to a different module or return to the Box. Remember to clear the filter to see all tasks/Boxes once again.

For example, the image below shows the Overview module date range filter. The date range in that module use the Box start and end dates which are not synchronized with Jira or connected tools:

The date range filter is also available in the Gantt module. It filters out tasks based on their position on the timeline. Tasks that don't fit the specified range are filtered out.

For example, the BU-38 starts on August 28th and finishes on November 6th. As the filter date range is set to May 1st to September 1st, the BU-38 is visible:
