Filtering on numeric fields doesn't have greater/less than (but does have text options)

These filter options don't look right for numeric values - there's no greater/less than, but there are things like "Starts with"!

"Days Since Last Session" is a string data type, not a number. That's why there are no 'greater than' or 'less than' operators.

It seems that right now you can only use one of these four expressions in filters: Equals, Contains, Starts with and Regex- no matter what data type you want to filter.

I believe this will change in the future.
