The My Reader interface is a great way to consult the information that has been stored into your projects and folders. To find out more about working with My Reader, please follow this link.
Sorting Information Based on Dates
As well as being able to filter information by project, folder, keywords, tags and other options, it is also possible to sort the information based on three different types of date:
- creation date: the date on which the information was first stored into the project
- update date: the date on which the latest modifications were made (unless the information has been edited this will be the same as the creation date)
- publication date: the date on which the information was first posted on the internet
In addition, you can select the time period you are interested in.
The default setting is to display information updated in the last 7 days.
Selecting the dates

When Analysis with Different Date Options
The ability to change the dates you use will be very useful when looking at the When analysis, among other things.

To get a greater granularity for dates, it is also possible to change the frequency of the When graph.
Click on By week in the top right corner of the graph:
Selecting By day gives the following When analysis:
Clicking on the peak, I can easily identify the main story of that day, MasterCard is investing in cybersecurity.
