- Step 2. Select one of the commonly used date ranges provided for convenience
Caution: Be aware that certain data types will not have updates in all date ranges. For example, daily weather updates may not be visible if you select 'Last 15 minutes'. Other data sets may also have a small delay before data is populated in InfoTiles.
