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.
