Time-based data segmentation helps you filter your responses for a particular time frame, depending on when the survey was completed. Specify a time-frame to analyze data captured only during that period.
Longitudinal studies generally feel the need to analyze responses based on various time frames. This feature is exceptionally vital in cases where the market is volatile and subject to continuous change.
Researchers generally use time-based filters to measure customer behavior and social-personality over time. Organizations use them to study fluctuations in thoughts, emotions, and behaviors from time to time or moment to moment.

Here are the advantages of time-based segmentation:
Used in medical studies: Time-based filters help relate to events. Researchers can gauge the long-term and short-term effects of drugs on patients.
Establish a sequence of events: Breaking down the study by time helps researchers establish the sequence of events, making it easier to gauge trends.
Meaningful insights: By focusing on a specific time-frame, researchers gather meaningful insights by filtering by time.
Draw better conclusions: Time-based filters help researchers draw better conclusions by tracing habits during specific times and understand what factors affect what decisions.
