A date filter has three options when defining the value(s) used in determining the date used in filtering report data: User Prompt, Defined Value, and Pre-defined Period.
The Value option for a metric (number) or dimension filter is limited to User Prompt and a simple Defined Value.
Select the User Prompt option to allow the report user to define the date(s) for the filter. This is the default selection for the filter value.
The defined value can be set as a dynamic date, which can be set to be accurate down to the second, or a traditional date value, which is defined by a calendar date.
The pre-defined period has several options from which you can choose to pinpoint the date for the report filter.
