Dates filters

To narrow the date range for your report, use the Date filter.

The Earliest date option puts no limitation on the begin dates for the search. Similarly, the Latest date option does not limit by end date. The default setting is for both options to be selected, which means the system does not filter on dates.

Entering actual dates in the From or To field, or both, limits the report to tasks that contain dates active within the selected range.

Active dates

The date prompts use active dates. All projects, plans, and programs that are active any time within the specified date range meet the report criteria.

For example, if you specify a date range from January 1, 2015 to March 15, 2015, the following projects meet the criteria:

  • Projects starting on or after January 1, 2015, no matter when they end.
  • Projects ending on or before March 15, 2015, no matter when they began.

The following projects do not meet the criteria:

  • Projects ending before January 1, 2015
  • Projects starting after March 15, 2015
