The Date of field update is one of the statistic fields that shows you when was the last time a specific field was updated. Unlike Time since field update field which displays the day (or hour) count that has passed since the field was updated, Date of field update reflects the date and precise time. 

To better understand how you can use this field for your own purposes, let's look at a few examples.

Example 1

Just as with Time since field update field you can measure off the time interval to see if any of your records are left behind the time-frame, the same thing you can perform with Date of field update. 

  1. Head to your Settings and find a tab "Folder and Field Management". Click "Add field -> Statistics -> Date of field update as statistic type and choose the field which you want to keep an eye on.

  2. Open your folder and apply the next filter rules (values could be different):

These rules are configured to display all records marked "In progress" whose status has not changed today. This means that today no one has dealt with these recordings and you should pay attention to them and find out what's the matter.

Example 2 

Suppose that over time, when you change the deal stage, you transfer the deal to another person (e.g. they show the client a house or object). To do this, you assign a colleague to a record.
Usually, no more than a week is allotted for this stage. But, something goes wrong and the deals do not move on further. 

Using this field you can check which deals are not being closed on time.

  1. Head to the settings and put the Date of field update anchoring it to the Manager field.

  2. Open your folder and apply the next filter rules (values could be different):

Thus, you will see all the records at a certain stage in which the manager has not changed for more than a week.

There are many other ways to use the Date of field update field, which depend on your pipeline design and workflow. Feel free to experiment and discover more ways to optimize your business processes.
