Filter Recordings by Date and Time
To filter reports within a specific date range, click on the Date Filter and select the date range for which you want to view the recordings. By default, the session recordings report displays data within the last 30 days from the current day. You can choose from one of the following preset options, as required:
Last 30 Days|
View reports of the last 30 days from today|
Last 7 Days|
View reports of the last 7 days from today|
View yesterday's recording data|
View today's recording data|
To specify a custom date range, just choose the start date and the end date from the calendar. You can also specify the time in hours and minutes to draw results accurately within the time frame. For defining the time period, use the Start and the End options to select the appropriate numbers for the hours and minutes.
Once done, click the Filter button to filter the recordings for your specified time period.
