Date range filters


You can use the date range filters to show Jira issues, basic tasks, or boxes scheduled in a specified period of time.

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

  • Overview 
    When you filter by the date range using the Overview module, the Box start and end dates will be used (tasks' dates are not relevant).

  • Gantt

  • Risks

When you filter by the date range using the Gantt or the Risks modules, the tasks' Start and End Dates presented on the timeline will be used. 

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

Filter by dates in the Overview module

Use the calendar picker to set the preferred date range to check all the Boxes assigned. Use the Clear button to clear the chosen date range. The Today button opens the current month in the calendar.

The date range is marked in the calendar

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

Filter by dates in the Gantt and Risks modules

  • Filtering is available on the tasks that are visible on the timeline.

  • The position on the timeline determines the field mapping configured (here you can read more about field mapping). The start/end dates are not related to Jira fields. 

  • 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.
