I have a set of sales data. This data has information for orders confirmed on or before "x" date. But there is also a date for the delivery of the goods.
We are targeted each month not on orders placed, but orders delivered. So we are interested in, lets say for 15/08/2019, orders placed by that time that will be delivered in that month.
At the top of my document, I would like something like "Effective Date: dd/mm/yyyy".
This date will show data as it would have appeared at that time, unaffected by anything that has happened since. In this sense, it is almost like looking back in time to see what results would have been shown at that time.
The final result for that month is irrelevant, what is displayed is how the month appeared to be going at that moment in time.
So, I'm looking for a better term than "effective date" that implies that the user inputting the data is looking back in time. Almost like a "date of focus", but more time-travel-y. Effective isn't wrong, but just doesn't feel like enough.
I have tried looking up some terms but can't get the right word. If this makes any sense whatsoever, your help would be much appreciated!
