"An issue has occurred" When try to change the date range in Analyzer

Hi,

 

For all my cards, I am not able to change date range in the analyzer. The only date range I could use is "All Time", and if I selet any other date ranges, the error message wil show up.

Is there something wrong in my settings?

Thank you so much!

    I think your issue is the format of your Date Field.  In your data flow, you want use the function "Set Column Type".  Set your Date column to a date format.  This is how the analyzer will recognize the field as a date.  I am providing a screenshot of the setting I used for one of my date fields.  

     

    I hope this helps!  If it does, please mark it as a solution.  ?

    Good catch.  Domo will display the data type next to the card when building a card.  A string field will have a "T" and a date field will have a calendar.1.png

     

     

    If you don't want to fix from inside a dataflow, you could use a beastmode to change the data type for this card:2.png

     

     

    You can also use DATE_FORMAT().

     

    Here is a knowledge base article on date formats.

  • Thank you so much for your help! ? And the link you shared is really useful! Thanks!

  • Yes, it worked out! Thank you so much!

     

    Just a quick related question - after the date range was fixed, I start to have a date aggrefation problem. For example, when I select "this quarter", instead of showing 3 bars (Jan, Feb, Mar), it gives me this x-axis:

    Do you have any thoughts on how to fix this? Thank you so much!

     

  • make sure the 'Group by' is set to Month.
