How do you search for changes by date range? I don't see options like that at all.

I see now, the mobile version of the site (at least on an iPhone) doesn't offer the date filter.

As a newbie, I visit the knowledge base (KB) often and also try to see if anything is new. Sometimes, the KB listing shows "new" if the article is actually new. If you check the update dates, it does appear that minor changes were made at different times, but FileMaker does not mark what actually has changed.
So, I wish there was some revision history provided, and I wish that the search could be based on either create date or update date. Regardless, I wish we can search for a specific date range, so, for example, only yesterdays updated/created KB articles would appear.
The date filter searching is pretty lame as it stands now.
I have the same situation arising in the databases I create. Every table in every file has 3 Date fields: Created, Updated, and Obsoleted. The "Updated" field is auto-entered with the Modification Date any time anything within a record changes. I always have to remember to turn that auto-entering off whenever I'm doing something like "Replace Field Contents" or initializing a newly added field, because I want "Updated" to reflect only substantive changes, and then only the ones initiated by the end users, not me, the developer. (And, of course, then I also have to remember to turn that feature back on again when I'm done. Unduly kludgy, but it works if my brain does.) One dodge around this is to have, for example, phone numbers and eddresses stored in a related table, where I can update them to my heart's content without affecting the "Updated" field in the record they're connected to.
Not sure that any of this helps with your situation on the Knowledge Base (which I assume must itself be written in FileMaker Pro), but just wanted to offer an "I feel your pain" word of sympathy.

There is currently no good way to watch the FileMaker, Inc. help pages.
* A change log page that we could watch using http://www.watchThatPage.com/watchChanges.jsp
* A twitter account that we could subscribe to
Better yet, turn the help docs into a moderated wiki with a diff function...
Open up FileMaker help documentation to become a wiki
Help us help you help us!
Good ideas! Hope FMI reads yours and my suggestions
not, Twitter, please! a feed perhaps, but not Twitter.
