Creating Covid tracker – chat bot to integrate with free open source API
When you work in Model driven app – especially around date field, you may need to search record based on certain conditions.
Some of the options are shown in below image
The most often used filter criterias are “On”, “On or after” and “On or before”.
If we want to search records based on two date fields such as by using between operator, we need to use Advance search.
Before that, let see how “On or after” and “On or before” filter works. This is required to build our between filteration criteria.
On or after :
Consider the below records and see the published date in these records.
To get records after 1st of Aug 2021, the filteration shows three records
On or before:
To get records on or before 1st of Aug 2021, the filteration shows only one record
If we need to get record between 1st Aug to 7th Aug 2021, we need to use advanced search or using advance filteration.
Click on the advance search icon on the right hand corner . By using both “On or after” and “One or before”, we can achieve the between date range functionality.
Add the date range as shown below
Result shows records within the selected range of dates.
Click on the “Advance filter” option
Select the same filteration that we have discussed above
Records will be filtered out with the date range
