TH NextGen - Defining the search duration

A search duration needs to be defined for value based, digital step, and operating area searches.


You can define the duration using one or multiple of the following time indications.

  • Seconds: seconds, second, sec or s
  • Minutes: minutes, minute, min or m
  • Hours: hours, hour, hr or h
  • Days: days, day, dy or d
  • Weeks: weeks, week, wk or w
  • Months: months, month, mo, mth or M
  • Years: years, year, yr or y

For example, a minimum duration of 1 hours 30 minutes 10 seconds can be defined in either of the following ways (other options will work):

  • At least for 1 hours 30 minutes 10 seconds
  • At least for 1h30m10s
  • At least for 5410s


  • The minimal search result duration is defined by 2 times the index resolution (e.g., for an index resolution of 1 minute, you will be able to search for periods of at least 2 minutes).
  • The duration of your search results will always be a multiple of the index resolution, so it is advised to define the minimal search duration as multiples of the index resolution as well.
  • To avoid missed results due to this restriction, search results with a slightly shorter duration will appear in the result list as well.
  • A month is defined as 1/12th of a year.
  • A year is defined as 365 days.
