I have been searching, what version of SharePoint 2013 I need to use Date Filter Web Part.

Can I enable it on Foundation or do I need Standard for this? Or is it Enterprise feature only?

I can see those in SharePoint 2013 Enterprise:

From menu

On page

  • If you can get the webpart in webpart gallery than it will work for sure.

  • Well, the question is, do I need to enable it somewhere, because I don't see it in Foundation version and I can't find it in Standard as well..

You are using SharePoint Foundation, that's why Date Filter web part is missing as unfortunately it only comes with the Enterprise edition of SharePoint.

If you still want to apply the date filter than there is a trick mentioned in below link which can help you to get desired output.

  • Hmm, I try to check it out, but I have currently those Server Controls grayed out..

  • I already mentioned that, these webpart only comes with Enterprise edition not with Foundation. So ultimately the answer for your question is NO. I gave the alternate way to achieve it via link mentioned in my answer. That's it. Let me know if you need further help. :)

  • I understand, that those filters come only with Enterprise, I'm talking about Server Controls in Designer, where I can't add DateTimeControl, because it's grayed out some why..

  • Thank you for your answer, but I settled with Excel filtering tools, since it's much easier to achieve and has everything I need built in already.
