Prospect 1.8.6: Date Slider

We’ve just released a new version of Prospect (1.8.6) that includes a feature that’s been on our “To Do List” for a while: a super simple slider that filters data by date!

You can configure Date Sliders for your Exhibits to filter by date on a Template-by-Template basis. As the end-user slides the handle, a floating tooltip indicates the date at that position. This date is applied when the end-user releases the handle: only those Records which “intersect” this date are displayed.

Prospect’s previous Dates Filters – which allow for more complex filtering conditions – can still be created and applied in an Exhibit.

You can use a Date Slider in the Long Women’s Movement project on this Exhibit.
