Query from MongoDB with date fields

I have a collection in MongoDB that is linked to my retool. This collection has documents with date field. I'm having trouble applying a query to find records between dates.
Seems that Retool reports the date field is of 'document' type, and applying any query condition on it, such as $gte or $lt does not return any value.
Tried to search through the docs, but many links point to v1 or v2 JSON queries, which I'm not sure how to write or apply.

Hey @daniel123!

A typical date filter might look something like this:

    "$match": {
      "your_date_field": {
        "$gte": {
          "$date": "your_filter_value"

Is that what you already have?


Thanks - this was very helpful!

(In case anyone else tries this out, you need to have the query action type set to 'Aggregate' to use this syntax, rather than a regular 'find' action type).
