The first time a new use logs into WebViewer 12.1 and then goes to the Advanced Search tab, there is an initial error message that says: "Error: The Date filter exceeds the administrator set maximum for this repository. The maximum days ago value or date range span set in the repository is 90 days."  Filter settings being set as the administrator are not being used. When a new user comes in, Web Viewer tries to search 365 days instead of the value set by the administrator.
