Facebook has a Memories feature that shows you want happened on this day in other years.  I was trying to figure out a way for LR Mobile app to show me that same information from my best rated photos in my Lightroom.   

I was thinking it might be two steps with a smart collection, then copying results to a shared LR mobile, collection ( So i'm guessing no way to automate smart collections to lightroom mobile).  But the hard part is I can't select by month or day.

I can't find a way in smart collections to filter by day of month (for holidays) like all photos on October 31 (regardless of year).

Anyone know if this is possible, or is it a feature request.

I have been trying to do this also. I wanted to see all pictures take during the months of October and November, regardless of year. Can't do it from what I can tell. This should rather easy to implement.

I know others who've used John Ellis' Any Filter plugin to do something similar - http://www.johnrellis.com/lightroom/anyfilter.htm

John's an active participant on these forums, so he can probably chime in as to whether or not it'll get you exactly what you're looking for.

Both Any Filter and Data Explorer can search by hour of day, day of week, day of month, month, or year.
