I’m creating a Tinderbox file to review certain legal case, and I’m trying to capture four discrete dates per case. One of TB’s greatest users (and a real mensch) helped me set up a timeline label for previous TB files. Now I’ve created four timeline labels for these discrete dates, e.g.,
7A.TIMELINE:2018/01/16 - [Apprehension date]
7B.TIMELINE:2018/01/18 - [Separation date]
7C.TIMELINE:2018/02/11 - [Referral date]
7D.TIMELINE:2018/03/12 - [Last Action date]
I only need to create a singular date, and not a date range , per timeline label. So, I’m wondering if it would be better to to make 4 Date-type user attributes: $ApprehensionDate, $SeparationDate, $ReferralDate, $LastActionDate or should I use and alter the default TB dates? To be honest, I’m a bit lost as to to how to do either of these things, so I’d appreciate whatever guidance you could provide. Thanks!
BTW, there are two things I’d like to do with these labels as well, just in case it affection any set up advice:
(1) Group these labels in a container (or agent) together, and then be able to view them collectively, and individually, in a timeline view, and;
(2) Be able to tabulate the time span between 7C.TIMELINE:2018/02/11 - [Referral date] & 7D.TIMELINE:2018/03/12 - [Last Action date], per each case, so that I can determine what the mean duration is for all of these cases.
