Use date fields in frontend data views as search filters

For each date type field, you can specify whether it should be used as a filter field in the search filters of the front-end data views. You make the setting in the field configuration under the “Advanced” tab on the right-hand side.

Visforms then automatically adds two new search filters to the search filter bar. You use the two search filters to specify the time period from/to in which the values for this field must lie. It is also possible to set only a lower limit (from) or only an upper limit (to).

Use submission date in frontend data views as search filter

You can use the date the form was submitted as a search filter in frontend data views. The time of transmission corresponds to the creation date of the saved data record. You make this setting in the menu item that you use to publish the data view. The corresponding option “Show filter for created” is located in the menu configuration on the tab “Form data display options”.
