For the client component the date must be rendered as a moment object for the filtering to work. You can use the toMomentFormat helper option to do that for you. It accepts the current format of the dates in your dataset, and uses it to convert those dates to moment objects. E.g, if you have a created_at column with a date like 2017-12-31, you can use toMomentFormat: 'YYYY-MM-DD'. To determine the presentation of the dates use the dateFormat option.
