About Time Range QuickViews

If you have a Measure Factory license you can add a time range named group to your factory configuration file.

When the configuration file includes a time range named group, DivePort automatically adds a Time Range option to the Add QuickView Portlet, Select QuickView page. Selecting this option adds a Time Range QuickView that is populated with the rolling time ranges specified in the configuration file.

In DivePort 7.1(17) and later, you can allow users to specify a customized time range for Measure Factory data using Time Range Start and Time Range End options on the Add QuickView Portlet, Select QuickView page. You must include both options.

The QuickViews are populated with year-month values based on the date range in the factory.


  • Current is the exact specified range

  • Previous is a range with the same number of months, ending on the month before the selected Time Range Start value

  • Previous Year is the same as the selected range, shifted back by one year (it might overlap Current if the specified range is longer than 12 months)

  • Only completed time periods are included in the QuickView list unless you can select Include the current period

  • The start/end time range QuickViews do not affect the Current Date or Time Range selections

  • When start/end time range QuickViews are in use, Current Date and Time Range selections are ignored by Time Range QuickView time ranges by default
