Hi

Does anyone know of a way to ‘Filter’ a ‘Date’ column by something similar to “this week”?

Basically, I’m just trying to create a Grid View that shows - via a Filter - all enquiries that have been received ‘this week’ (which is from Monday through to Sunday of the week I’m looking/accessing the View in).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Stephen

Yes, it’s possible, although not as straightforward as you would hope. You need to create a new formula field to determine if your date field is within your week. Below, I used my date field, dt. This formula uses a Sunday to Saturday week, but you can play with the arguments to WEEKDAY to change that to Monday start.

Then you filter on this formula field being “Yes”. Good luck!

Thanks so much for this. I have entered the formula and it does work as described but admittedly it’s frying my brain as to how I actually get this to work for a Monday to Sunday work week :flushed:

Hi Stephen. You need to change the WEEKDAY functions to have an extra argument, 'Monday'.

Like so…

IF(AND(IS_AFTER(dt, DATEADD(TODAY(),-1*(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),'Monday')+1)....

Do that in all WEEKDAY functions. Let me know if it does what you want. Cheers!

Wouldn’t this formula also work? :thinking:

IF(DATETIME_FORMAT(DATEADD(date, -1, ‘days’), ‘w’)= DATETIME_FORMAT(DATEADD(TODAY(), -1, ‘days’), ‘w’), “this week”)

Much appreciated. I’ll take a look now.

Thanks for your input on this. Hopefully, this chat will help a lot of people out there that just need to do this one simple thing. Much appreciated.

So just a further enquiry to this, as I’m a major novice to formulas (but a fast learner), I’m trying to understand how this works; would it still consider “this week” as being Monday to Sunday, regardless of what day I looked at the View?

So for example if I view on a Tuesday it should only bring back those tasks that have occurred on Monday and Tuesday, whereas if I looked at this View on a Sunday it would bring back all those tasks that have appeared on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I must be doing something wrong as it’s rejecting the formula with:

IF(AND(IS_AFTER({Enquiry Date/Time},DATEADD(TODAY(),-1*(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),‘Monday’)+1),‘day’)),IS_BEFORE({Enquiry Date/Time},DATEADD(TODAY(),7-WEEKDAY(TODAY(),‘Monday’),‘day’))),‘Yes’,'No’)

My formula would bring in everything for the current week, no matter what day of the week it currently is or what day of the week the record has.
