Using The Time Slider In Traffic Reports

Quantcast’s new traffic report graphs (see example) now include a time slider which allows you to quickly display data for the exact time period that you wish. The time slider appears immediately below the graph (see image below). You can use it in several ways:

  • Click and drag the horizontal scroll bar to move the time range forward or backward. As you do this, the graph dynamically adjusts the graph to display the data you’ve chosen.
  • Click and drag each end of the slider to increase or decrease the range of data displayed. For example, use this to display a larger range of time (seven months instead of three months).


We are excited about the slider because it allows you to display traffic data for any time period of time. Of course, you can also specify dates by clicking the dates which appear on the right above the graph OR specify a range by clicking a range on to left below the graph (1w | 1m | 3m | 6m | 1y | All).
