Use "today" as Data Shuttle filters


In Data Shuttle I would like to create an offload from a sheet by selecting "greater than today" as a filter on a Date field of my sheet.

I succeeded with "contains" "2021", but am unable to have something that works when trying with Today(), nor Today in the criteria box. And it does not work with a specific date.

Is there a way to have this Today criteria working ?

Thanks a lot for your help!

    Hi @Marie Armand

    "Today" isn't currently supported as a filter type in Data Shuttle (please let the Product team know of your feedback by filling in this form, here!)

    That said, you could set up a helper column in your sheet using a formula to indicate if that row is Today or not... ex:

    =IF([Start Date]@row > TODAY(), "Greater Than Today", "Other")

    Then you can use this formula output as the Filter in your Data Shuttle workflow...ex:

    Filter Logic = Helper Column, Is Equal To, "Greater Than Today"

    Does that make sense? Keep in mind that the TODAY function won't be able to recognize what day today is unless the sheet is refreshed somehow. There's a list of actions that will update TODAY in this Help Article.

    This would be incredibly beneficial to my team and company as well. We need to offload data from Smartsheet for use in downstream processing daily. It would greatly streamline things if filtering logic could filter out only data that has changed in the sheet using filters or similar functionality as in place for uploads where only new information is updated.

    This would reduce the offloaded file size and downstream processing times significantly.

    I will see if @Marie Armand has submitted a feature request and will vote that up if it is out there. If not, I'll be submitting a feature request.

    Best Regards,
