|Relative||A point in time relative to 'now'. Eg 10 days ago. Relative points in time will always shift to keep the same duration before or after 'now'.|
|Now||Setting the time to "now" means that on every refresh this time will be set to the time of the refresh.|

Tip: If you work with an absolute time range and need to use it multiple times, you can create a time range filter to use later.
Use time range filter
1. Click Add filter on the left-hand side
2. Select the field that determines the timestamp in your dataset.
3. Select "is between" as operator.
4. Set date and time:
- The time needs to be in ISO format (or milliseconds from the epoch).
- The date is mandatory while the time is optional.
- Example of valid format:
- Date and time: 2021-10-01T14:00:00.000
- Date: 2021-10-01
5. Add a custom label for later use.

Note: The time range filter should be a subset of the time range picker. It can cause "no results" if the time range filter is outside the time range selected from the time range picker.
