Dates can be any of the following:
Explicit Dates: Dates can be expressed as explicit date strings in the YYYYMMDD[HHMM] format. The year, month and day are required, while the hours and minutes are not; the hours and minutes will default to 0000 if no values are provided. Deltas: Dates can be expressed as delta values. For example, '2h' would mean 2 hours in the future. You can also use negative values to express times in the past (e.g., -7d would be one week ago). Units: s -> seconds m -> minutes h -> hours d -> days

name ssm (see 'help ssm') search:QUERY (see 'help system_search') group:GROUP channel:CHANNEL
