Handling activity with partial information
The Activity View needs temporal data that includes dates and times. You can configure the behavior for properties that contain a date but no time or a time with no date.
If the date and time information is contained in separate properties, Analyst's Notebook can recognize the properties as a combined date and time pair. To recognize them as a pair, the properties must be assigned the semantic types Event Start Date and Event Start Time, or Event End Date and Event End Time.
To configure how date-only and time-only properties are handled:
Click the Analyze tab, and then in the Gain
Insight group, click Activity View.
The Activity View opens.
Click Partial Properties.
The Partial Properties Setup window opens.
To configure how to handle properties that contain date-only information, in the
Date-only Properties area, select one of the following options:
Option Description Don't Show Ignores any date-only temporal data. Show At Assigns a time that you specify to date-only temporal data. Show over the entire day Assigns a default duration of 24 hours to date-only temporal data.
To configure how to handle properties that contain time-only information, in the
Time-only Properties area, select one of the following options:
Option Description Don't Show Ignores any time-only temporal data. Show On Assigns a date that you specify to time-only temporal data.
