Understanding the Date Range

When configuring an Entry Automation task, the Select Date Range field lets you set a range of what entries should be selected for export based on the entry creation date.

The Date Range consists of two dates: the From date and the To date.

The From date range field sets the beginning date of the range. When the From field is left empty, all entries since the beginning of time will be selected.

The To date range field sets the end date of the range. When the To field is left empty, all entries up until the time your Entry Automation Task is being run will be selected.

Entry Automation’s Date Range setting works similar to the Date Range setting on the Gravity Forms Export Entries page. However, Entry Automation differs as it supports relative dates.

You can set your own date range using plain English phrases (e.g. “yesterday”, “2 hours”, “5 weeks”). When entering a date, Entry Automation will display a preview relative to when the task is set to run next. If the entered date is invalid, an error will be displayed.

If you want to get all the entries from the past week, set the From date range to 1 week and leave the To date range empty. If you want to get all the entries in the past day, set the From date range to 1 day.
