I have a custom collection that I wish to filter by created date and het entries created "yesterday"

Collection Entries

//dates are set in controller using
setCreatedTime(Mage::getModel('core/date')->gmtDate()); 

Created Yesterday (does not work)

//3 products items Yesterday
//below filtering outputs incorrect entries
$collection = Mage::getModel('things/things')->getCollection();

I have tried, but outputs incorrect entries;

//thought strtotime('yesterday') would work..
$collection->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('gt' => Mage::getModel('core/date')->date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime('yesterday'))));
$collection->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('gt' => Mage::getModel('core/date')->date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime('-1 day'))));
$collection->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('from'=> strtotime('-1 day', time()),'to'=> time(),'datetime' => true));
$fromDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime($fromDate));
$toDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime($toDate));
$collection->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('from'=>$fromDate, 'to'=>$toDate));

Created Today (current Day)(works)

//5 products items today with timestamp 2016-05-01 05:22:53
//below filtering outputs correct entries
$collection = Mage::getModel('things/things')->getCollection();
$collection->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('gt' => Mage::getModel('core/date')->date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime('today'))));

Created past week (works)

//23 products items with timestamps for this week
//below filtering outputs correct entries
$collection = Mage::getModel('things/things')->getCollection();
$collection->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('gt' => Mage::getModel('core/date')->date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime('-1 week'))));

To add to @Ashvin answer..

I got entries created within the past hour

$things = Mage::getModel('things/things')->getCollection();
$things->addFieldToFilter('things_type', 'view');
$fromDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime('-1 hour'));
$toDate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime(now()));
$things->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array(
    'from' => $fromDate,
    'to' => $toDate,
    'date' => true,
    ));
return count($things);

and how I got yesterdays created entries;

$now = Mage::getModel('core/date')->timestamp(time());
$dateStart = date('Y-m-d' . ' 00:00:00', $now);
$dateEnd = date('Y-m-d' . ' 23:59:59', $now);
$things = Mage::getModel('things/things')->getCollection();
$things->addFieldToFilter('things_type', 'view');
$things->addFieldToFilter('created_time', array('from' => $dateStart, 'to' => $dateEnd));
return count($things);

How do we solve it? simple. limiting the amount of orders presented in the orders grid for the last 24 hours, unless requested otherwise.

Example:- Copy the app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php file to:

app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php

Edit the following function, copy-paste from here:

protected function _prepareCollection()    {

$collection = Mage::getResourceModel($this->_getCollectionClass());

######################## FILTER BY LAST DAY ######################
$now = Mage::getModel('core/date')->timestamp(time());
$filter   = $this->getParam($this->getVarNameFilter(), null); //important - check for other requested grid-filters before filtering today's orders

$dateStart = date('Y-m-d' . ' 00:00:00', $now);
$dateEnd = date('Y-m-d' . ' 23:59:59', $now);
$postData = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getPost();
if (empty($filter)) {
$collection->addFieldToFilter('`main_table`.created_at', array('from' => $dateStart, 'to' => $dateEnd));
}
##################################################################



$collection->getSelect()->group('entity_id');
$this->setCollection($collection);

return $this;

}

use to more code to Your ask question... (today, yesterday, week, hour etc)

  • Hey! Great solution! How can I change it so it takes only the orders from two hours ago? – Vladimir Despotovic Oct 13 '17 at 19:21
