I have added the announcements web part to my main page and I want to filter it so that users only see announcements through the web part if the announcement has been posted within the past week.

I opened up the list view options and I see filter options. But I don't know how they work with dates because they ask for a value and then specify that it won't show if the value is less than, greater than, equal to, etc. some number.

You can apply the filter at editing current view under List View Edit Properties. See the below screen shot how to apply a filter on dates.

The Date filter would be like this [Today]-7

  • There should not have any spaces between. Use like this [Today]-7 Jun 8, 2017 at 19:01
