Hi Monique,

From my head rather than any style guide or other authority: period
suggests duration; interval, the time between events.

Best regards,

Ant

Hello, WR-L-ers,

I've googled, and found nothing but confusion (or info that's tied
to a particular software's/class's implementation) around when to
use "time period" vs. "time interval" (and just for fun, "time
duration").

Anyone have a quick cheat-sheet sort of thing or an online reference
you can point me to?

The context is describing how to "work with" charts/tables/reports
(which I'm calling "visualizations" - thanks, Robert!), and the user
can change the start and end times, and even the "range" field, of
the times that are shown as the x-axis.

Thanks,
-Monique
