Hi @danielbb, from the CLI, go to Settings > Server settings > General settings > Search preferences. There's a drop down there to change the default time range.

The documentation to do this via web, CLI or conf file is here:

Server settings > Search preferences in 7.3

Is there a way for the users to set their own defaults?
