Investigation Time Range

When the Investigation page is opened independent of a Search, all of the account data is presented for the Time Range selected.

If the Time Range applied to the search is more than 14 days, the last 14 days of data is presented.


The filters in the Investigation page allow users to fine-tune the data presented. The filters in the Investigation page are the same filters as in the Dashboard_, but apart from the Time Range and the Applications selected do not carry over from the Dashboard during a search. The filters affect all data in the Investigation page.
