Creating a Start Date and End Date filter to update graph accordingly

Path Finder


Hope you're all well. I had a question regarding filters. I have a graph that is updated with data. What I want to be able to do is to have a drop down option for the fields start date and end date, wherein a user would click on one of the dates. Say for example the start date is 19/10/2017 and end date is 23/10/2017, the graph should be updated to represent data during that time period.

How would I go about doing that?

Kind Regards

Assuming you're using a dashboard, try editing it, clicking "+Add Input", at the top, select "time", and let us know if that is what you're looking for.
