Directly Enter Dates

Post by racerfern » Fri Jan 25, 2013 05:00

I'm entering trip/vacation dates that go back to 2004. It would be nice to be able to directly enter a date and then have the calendar jump to that date. Right now I don't see any other way than to hold page up to back about 100 months, unless I'm missing something. I realize this doesn't happen all that often but you might find yourself editing a calendar field and have to jump through a lot of hoops to get to it.

Maybe once you enter a starting date, make the ending date a week or two later. Then a little editing gets you to the date you want. Right now you have to go back for the ending date also.
Many thanks,

You can click on the year in the calendar popup and select the year directly, so you don't have to go through each month. And additionally, after any date is displayed in the date field, you can edit the date directly with the keyboard.

You can also put the Arrow on the month/year and rotate the Wheel mouse :)
