Searching Content by Date

There are different ways of selecting a date:

  • Using a conventional datepicker by clicking on the small calendar button
  • Navigating through days by clicking the arrows on the right
  • Writing the date directly into the textfield
  • To select the current date, use the button to the left of the arrows

The dropdown to the left of the date can be used to change the function of the date field, such that it either marks the start/end of a period or a single day.

Viewing Results

If the search was successful the output is a list of documents. The first column displays the property by which the documents were found, followed by the document title. Further information about the documents can be gained by hovering over each row.

The documents may have components which can be expanded by clicking the small arrow on the left.

To open documents, double click. To use somewhere else, drag and drop.
