Quick Tip: Selecting Custom Date Ranges on Compete Graphs

Selecting a specific time frame that is not part of the predefined options at the top of the graph (3M, 6M, 1Y, 2Y) is quick and easy.

  1. Simply select the beginning point on the graph by clicking with your mouse and dragging it across to the end of your desired time frame.
  2. Release the mouse when you’ve selected the desired time frame and the graph will automatically size properly.  In the image below, I’ve selected 07/2013 through 10/2013.
