When analyzing your recruiting process, it's important to filter your data by date to ensure you're looking at the most relevant information. Since each organization typically filters by specific dates (such as quarters, initiative launches, or other dates), Greenhouse Recruiting stays flexible by using relative dates in essential report filters.

What are relative dates?

When filtering data in a Greenhouse Recruiting report, you'll be presented with a few default options. The relative times (such as previous year, current year, or last 90 days) are based on the current date. This structure ensures that your reports don't break when a specific date passes.

If you want to review the specific dates and times used to calculate our relative dates, check out the table below.

Note: Relative dates will be calculated based on the Greenhouse timezone set for the user running the report. Follow these steps to confirm your Greenhouse timezone:

  • Select your name in the top right corner of the page.
  • Click on My Info.
  • Check your timezone in the Personal Information section. If you need to update it, click Edit.

Filter by specific dates

If you need to filter a report by a specific date range, you can select Custom Range from the filter options and choose your own dates.
