Tasks File Date Range (Extended)

Use the Task File(s) Date Range dialog to specify the date range of the files that will be processed by the Task. You can select to have files processed based on their last accessed or last modified date. The Task will process files that have last accessed or modified dates that occur in the range specified. The range will be based on the date and time at the moment that the Task is run. Day 0 is the day that the Task is run. You can select one of the following settings:

  • Files from any date. This setting is the default.
  • Files from the last n hour(s) and x minute(s). The Task will process files that have a last modified date that falls in the time period that extends n hours plus x minutes back from the moment that the Task started to run.
  • Files from n day(s) ago. The Task will process files that have a last modified date of exactly n days before the current day (e.g. n = 1 will process yesterday's files only).
  • Files newer than n day(s) ago. The Task will process files that have a last modified date that is more recent than n days before the current day (e.g. n = 1 will process today's files only).
  • Files older than n day(s) ago. The Task will process files that have a last modified date that is older than n days before the current day (e.g. n = 0 will process all files except today's).
  • Files from the one week period that began n Day Of The Week (s) ago. The Task will process files that have a last modified date that falls in the 1 - 7 day period that began on the day specified (e.g. n = 1, Monday will process all files from the previous Monday to Sunday or the previous Monday to today if that period is less than a week).
  • Files from the calendar month n month(s) ago. The Task will process files that have a last modified date that falls in the exact month specified (e.g. n = 0 will process this month's files).
