What's the difference between the Classifications Exist (by Date) and Classifications List (by Date) function fields?

Here are some tips on the information you can get using these two helpful function fields:

Classifications Exist (by Date)

  • Displays a yes/no flag to indicate whether or not a record has any or all of the classifications set in the parameters for the time frame specified.
  • It is not connected to the Classifications field. 
  • If both the function and classification fields, the results will display as "yes" for all records regardless of the start/end dates on the classification record itself.

Classifications List (by Date)

  • Displays the classifications selected within the time frame specified within the parameter settings.
  • Does not require the Classification field to be included in the query results.
  • Use the parameters to set the classifications you are querying on
  • Set the criterion filter field to set the filter to view only records with those classifications indicated in the parameters
