Displaying Custom Date

I generate PDFs of the report to distribute to staff.  I've noticed that when I select a custom time period for information to display, that date range doesn't display when the document is viewed.  The text in the date box indicates "select date range". 

 

Is there a way to have the custom date range display as it does when you select the ranges that are set within the date range options?

Hi Vicki,

 

did you define your custom time period in the Date range's properties?


If you define it in a chart, it's independent of the Date range control.

 

The default Date range of your chart should be set to "Auto" and your actual Date range should be defined in the Date range controls properties.

 

Hope that helps.

I don't see an option for "Auto".  If I stay within the predetermined time frames, i.e. Today, Yesterday, Last 7 Days, etc.,  It displays a date range.  If I manually select a date range, once I go to view, the words "select date range" appear where I have the box for the date.
