Find files associated with a particular date or date range. GoldFynch searches the file's text as well as its metadata.

Search for dates

As GoldFynch processes the files you upload, it scans for dates. These dates are extracted from the file’s text and metadata fields. Some common fields are date of document creation and date of last modification. GoldFynch can spot dates in many formats (e.g. April 2002 or 04/01/2002).

How to search for dates

  • Use any format for the date (e.g. mm/dd/yyyy, month/dd/YYYY, etc.).
  • For a date range, separate the start and end dates with a hyphen.

Using MM/DD/YYYY format

In this date-range example, we use the standard format: MM/DD/YYYY – MM/DD/YYYY.

Using Month Year format

Here, we instead use the date format: “Month Year – Month Year”.
