Is there a way to have the Start and End Dates default to the past 30 days to Today? I am fairly new with this product and I have been changing them manually.
Currently there is no way to do that in the product. However, we are looking to make improvements in reports and alerting in one of our releases next year and we'll take this into consideration.
It actually makes no sense and is very annoying to have to change these dates every time. How does it determine which dates to use? Thanks.
It uses a date 30 days ago up until today. I'm sorry you are frustrated. As Joy said, we are looking to make improvements with the reports and alerts next year.
Wait. Mine doesn't do that. Mine is currently using 10/20/2018 through 11/21/2018 by default every time I open a report and I end up changing both. Why isn't mine using a date 30 days ago up until today?
That does sound like odd behavior. Have you had any activity over the last few days? Maybe it starts from the last date of activity and works backward. If you have had activity, contact support and may they can help you sort through what is happening.
I really have a tough time with Idera support. It seems to take days if not weeks to get anything resolved. It never used to be like that.
I'm really sorry to hear that. I've forwarded this message over to the support team so they can look into the issue for you. Mention this blog post and that should help you.
