Chooses records regardless of the dates.
This option is not available for all reports or filters.

A preset range of dates commonly used, e.g. Current Week, Current Month, Last Month, Next year, etc. Results for this range will change automatically.
Filter type filters the results based on the items' start dates and end dates. "Contains Within" means the item starts AND ends within the dynamic date range.
These are specific dates where you control the range.
Reports saved with these settings remember these specific date ranges no matter how far into the future we progress. When running the report, the report will always use those exact dates, they will never change.
Quick Tip: Typing the letter "t" will populate today's date.
