This help desk is no longer actively support. We have switched to a ticketing system to more smoothly manage support, and free up development time. Your newly created tickets won't be available here. You will instead have an email history of your new tickets.

We are working on moving everything current and helpful from public tickets into the docs. This will be a long process and in the meantime, public tickets will remain searchable.

How to enter height/weight and search by ranges

I have a form collecting information such as DOB, race/sex/height/weight.  I need to provide a search form by those criteria, but not exact.  What is the best way to allow for search of "about 20 years old, 175-200 lbs, between 5'8" and 6'1""?

Hi Ken,

When searching ranges, you'll need to specify the exact start and end value for the range. Here's an example using dates:

This type of range search should work fine for age and weight. But searching a range with values like 5'8" won't work reliably. Instead, heights would need to be saved in a searchable format like 5.66.

Ok, thanks!
