How can I set "this week or this month" in query condition?

chen fengmiao (7032932) | asked Feb 27 '13, 9:54 p.m.

I want to create a query that how many workItems were created this week or this month On RTC.

But I don't know how to set the query condition. Because the creation date hasn't  this week or this month option...

I don't think there is a built in way to query for this week or this month.  As you saw, you can query for the work items created in the last 7 days or the last month.  The workaround would be to manually update the queries at the beginning of every week and month.

Depending on what you're trying to do, you could also use the Java API to programmatically query for work items in the last week or month. has examples of how to get started.

Chen, if in your query, you use the condition 'after (including) ... 7 days ago' or 'after (including) ... 31 days ago' on 'Creation Date', this will provide you with all work items which were created in the past week or past month ... isn't that what you are looking for ?

 another around would be creating a enumeration list like week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4 week 5 and add with work item during creation.

Or any script based default value  can fetch u the week number
