  • Start Date is mandatory.

  • Data can be retrieved for the date range specified between the start and end dates.

  • If you leave the end date blank, the data will be pulled at the current time of the river's run.

  • Dates timezone : UTC time.

  • Use the Last Days Back For Each Run option to gather data from a specified number of days prior to the selected start date.
