Change "Event Date From" and "Event Date To" wording

Currently, when looking at the "Reports -> HeavyJob Data -> Event Date", the filter at the top of the page called "Event Date From" and "Event Date To" filters based on the field called "Transaction Date".  This is unclear and I, and likely others as well, assume when I use this that "Event Date" refers to the date of the actual event on the server, i.e. the "Sent Date".  It is problematic because although the filter refers to "Event Date", there is no field called "Event Date" in the results (only "Sent" and "Transaction Date"), and therefore it is unclear as to which date field this filter is actually using.  Changing the wording at the top of the page to say "Transaction Date From" and "Transaction Date To" would make this much clearer to the user.

 

Every time I go to use this filter right now, I have to remind myself that it works backwards of how I think it should work based on the wording.

    Brandon,

    Semi good news.  This report had already been retouched for the upcoming 17.5 release (aiming for Dec 19th).  We changed a few things:

    • We removed the Number of records field, it was confusing and not very useful.
    • The report no longer auto loads. This should speed things up a little because you're not waiting for it to finish to run it again with the criteria to find what you are really looking for.
    • The report is now truly paginated.  This should speed up your results especially when running for a large range.
    • We changed the Date Range to apply to the Sent column instead of the Transaction Date column.

    A little too late for this release, but if you like, we could alter the Date Range to include both Sent and Transaction Date in the result set.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks.

    Glad to hear some improvements have been made, these will be helpful.  If I had to choose, I would say that filtering based on the "Sent Date" is the more useful of the two for sure, although it wouldn't hurt to have both options.

    Ok.  The Sent Date search range is scheduled to be released on Dec 19th.  I'll send you a follow up email to let you know when that happens.  

    Side note....the SSO using federation is now also in the works.  I'll let you know more about that when we get closer.

    Thanks.
