## Does the "between" filter option include the extremes of the range?

Hi,

Here is a snapshot of what I'm trying to achieve

I am setting up ranges but I'm confused about what they currently look like.

Here is what I really want:

Ready: [20 - ... ] || equal to 20 or greater

Need time: [0 - 19] || between 0 and 20, including 0 but NOT 20

Not for you [(-...) - (-1)] || any negative values

Is this what my campaign is actually doing?

Basically: does Marketo include extremes in ranges or not?

Between includes the start and end date when using it with the date filter so I am assuming it would be the same on scoring fields.

UPDATE:

Just did a test using a score field and it does indeed include the extremes of the range. So, in your example the filter would include -1 and 21.

Thanks for your answer! Sorry it took so long. Both answers are correct, so I don't know if I can or how to mark both.

So basically "Between" is inclusive. Thanks!

Hi Victor Herrero​,

Here is an explanation for your case

In this case, using greater than would mean  - Above the specified Value. So if you want equal to 20 or greater, the correct operator should be "at least" - Which means - Above the specified (Inclusive)

In this case again using between would mean - Define two value to find everyone in between (inclusive). So from what is defined, it will include every one including -1 and 21. The correct option should be "Between - 0 - 19" That would make sure 0 is included and 20 is not included

This option is defined Correct! "Less than" means  - Less than Specified.

For future reference you can use the Smart List Filter Operators Glossary​ which explains all the operators in detail.

Hope this helps.
