When retrieving documents, you can limit your search to documents with a specific Document Date or within a certain date range. You can limit results by date when performing searches by Keyword Value, external text searches, and note searches. A Document Date is assigned to all documents upon import.


User rights are needed to access the Document Retrieval layout and to view documents. Contact your system administrator for additional information.

See Document Properties for clarification on Document Date vs. Date Stored.
