Are you hoping to display the data as a gauge or an indicator?
Both of these can filter on a date field and can have multiple filters added. You can build something like: 'Appraisal' = "New" and 'EditDate' is within the Last 1 Day.
In the image below, I'm just using the editor tracking fields, but if you have an "Appraisal Date" field, that too would work. The exact same filter will work on an indicator, it will just look different.
My bad... We were trying to filter a bar chart as I recall and that's why I used a numeric month id. An indicator seems like the way to go for this application: maybe have two or three: Year to date, Current Quarter, Daily....
