Coveo Date Facet Range

The Coveo Dynamic Date Facet Range is now recommended over the Coveo Date Facet Range rendering.

Implements the Coveo JavaScript Search Framework FacetRange component to allow filtering of results based on a date field value, by selecting one or multiple date ranges.

Usage Notes

  • The Sitecore date field which the facet is based on must be included for indexing in the Templates table of the Indexing Manager (see About the Indexing Manager - Fields).

  • To use the Coveo Date Facet Range rendering with custom date ranges, create a content tree structure, such as the one below, containing a Custom Date Ranges item with children Date Range items. This structure can be placed anywhere in the content tree. You will reference the location of the Custom Date Ranges item in the Facet value ranges data source option (see Configure Custom Ranges for a Date Range or Numeric Range Facet).

    Dyn Date Facet Range required items

  • Any change to the facet value selections triggers a new Search API call.

Insertion Location

The Coveo Date Facet Range rendering is an Allowed Control in the following placeholder(s): Facets

Coveo for Sitecore SXA rendering insertion locations aren’t limited by placeholder Allowed Controls. The Coveo Date Facet Range rendering may therefore be inserted throughout the partial design, whether in Coveo for Sitecore or Sitecore placeholders.

Sample Generated HTML and Corresponding Visual Output

In your Sitecore instance, you created a My Custom Date Ranges item using the /sitecore/templates/Coveo Hive/Custom Ranges Parameters/Custom Date Ranges template. Under this item, you created six range items using the /sitecore/templates/Coveo Hive/Custom Ranges Parameters/Date Range template. These range items divide the January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2020 timeframe into six half-year periods.
