Use only the date1 part

In the following example only the date part is set. Time is set to by default to 00:00:00. So the following query compares all entries archived within a day (2021-06-14):

var start = new Date("2021-06-14");
var end = new Date("2021-06-15");

db.call_archive.find({
  archivedAt: {$gte: start, $lt: end}
}).pretty();

Use both date and time

You can also specify the Time in ISO format

  • new Date("<YYYY-mm-ddTHH:MM:ss>") - specifies the datetime in the client's local timezone and returns the ISODate with the specified datetime in UTC
  • new Date("<YYYY-mm-ddTHH:MM:ssZ>") - specifies the datetime in UTC and returns the ISODate with the specified datetime in UTC
var start = new Date("2021-06-14");
var end = new Date("2021-06-15");

db.call_archive.find({
  archivedAt: {$gte: start, $lt: end}
}).sort({archivedAt: -1}).pretty(); //sort descending

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
