Add Weeks/Days/Hours Old to Advanced Search

Bookmarks are brilliant, especially when you couple them with Advanced Search operators. It's easy to look at the extensive range of options and think - "this has every conceivable option" - however, I realised today it misses one important operator/criteria option:

Older/Newer than Age/Weeks/Days/Hours/Minutes

This would be extremely useful - I hope you consider it

I think it's all there but not in an click=>done method.
You have to type the commands

Indeed it is, and all I needed was the code, not the interface.

It took me a little while get the gist of the approach which is shown in the Constraints area of the help file as:

Code: Select all

<last|past|prev|current|this|coming|next><year|month|week>
But I ultimately got it to work with this implemetation:

Code: Select all

"C:\mypathhere\" dm:past12hours
Thank you!
