Calendar Overview [Marin Search]

Introduction

On the left-hand side of the application, data values shown in the grid can be adjusted by selecting different date ranges. Use the calendar mode or the custom date mode to make a date selection.

Note: This article only applies to the Marin Search platform, not the MarinOne platform. ​​​​​​​

How to use the calendar

Highlight a date range to view in the grid:

  1. Click on the first day of the desired date range.
  2. Hold down the mouse button and drag the cursor to the last day of the desired date range.
  3. The date range selected will be highlighted.
  4. The grid will automatically update based on your selection.

To compare the selected date range to the same time period of the previous month or week:

  1. Select the appropriate view in the change vs. drop down.
  2. Compared dates will be highlighted in gray.
  3. Percent changes and deltas can be viewed in the grid under the Change columns. For example, see Cost Chg and Revenue Chg.

Additionally, you can show data values by Date of Click and Date of Conversion by clicking on the icons.

How to select a custom date range

  1. In the Quick Select drop-down on the calendar, select Custom.
  2. Type in the date range to view in the grid.
  3. Type in the date range to compare in the Change columns under Baseline for % changes. Percent changes and deltas can be viewed in the grid under the Change columns. For example, see Cost Chg and Revenue Chg.
  4. Days of the week can be excluded by un checking them in the Date Range section. For example, to view only weekday data, uncheck Saturday and Sunday.
  5. Click the Apply Filter button. The grid will update based on your selection.

Important information

  • Note that when comparing large date ranges, your two date ranges may not be exactly comparable. The reason for this is that the Platform uses a logic to balance out the number of weekends vs. weekdays.

    For example, if you wanted to compare 01/01/2012 with 01/01/2013, the Platform's comparison range may actually be 01/01/2012 - 01/03/13.
