I'm trying to search for contributions made in the previous 4 months.

Example - We are in October, but I want to be able to see if people have contributed since June 1.

I can search by previous month (Sept), previous 2 months (Aug), and the previous quarter (July), but am not sure how to search from the previous 4 months.

Any ideas?

You can always search by selecting "Choose Date Range" and entering dates manually (see screenshot below).

If you're looking to use a relative date filter because you need this to be in a report or smart group, then that date filter doesn't currently exist.

However: I am actively working on making it possible to create your own date filters (CRM-16195)! I am waiting on someone to review some preliminary cleanup I did a couple of weeks ago. Once the cleanup is approved, I will submit a change so that custom date filters can be added by an extension. I already have an extension written that will handle your scenario.

If you absolutely can't wait, and you're comfortable patching CiviCRM, contact me on https://chat.civicrm.org (@junglebird) and I'll give you a patch so you can do this today.

  • Thanks for the update, it turns out I was misreading the dates I needed to search for, but it's nice to know that such a code is on it's way! Commented Oct 4, 2017 at 17:55
  • I also figured that a combination of 'contribution' last made smart groups and 'activity -> membership status changed' smart groups can fill in the gap. Commented Oct 17, 2017 at 21:00
