Is it possible to specify date range on Elastic snapshots?

With reference to the following documentation:

Is it possible to specify a time range for a snapshot? I can't see what the period for the snapshot is. Is it the last day/week/month?

The get snapshot API tells you when the snapshot was taken, and what indices it contains. Snapshots are a point-in-time thing, they don't themselves cover a period of time.

Adding to this that if you are using time based indices, where the index name contains the date of the data which are in it, then you can select only those indices when running the restore.

That's not specifying a time range as per say but is close enough...
