Relative dates

I am hoping this is actually not actually a feature request but just me being daft.

In module (and report) views, I'd like to filter on items with a start/due date within some relative time frame, "next 30 days", since the current "this month" and "next month" is fairly useless for pipeline type filters when the date is the 20th or something like this.

 

Each time a user opens this view, they will see items that have a start date with e.g. 2 weeks.

To be honest, I an really surprised this has been outstanding functionality until now but I guess this just show that sometimes what seems like the most basic of features is not used by that many :-)

Peter,

    I added my comments to the Clarizen Success article here, because the DATE FILTERS posed a problem for me and this is somewhat related:

Wow !!! Eight years ago ?!?! I will be giving you my vote versus creating a NEW request and Roland filed something similar here, since I am always bugging him about Reports.

"Humans" are not the only ones using Reports. We also use Reports to "feed" Google Cloud and other automated systems, so we need COMPLETE CONTROL of what gets sent based on Dates; because machines are not that "smart" yet and manually configuring multiple reports does not work anymore.

Yes. Yes. Yes. I know. We could use API, but guess what? When you do not have "buy in" from IT, then you build something "quick and dirty" with reports. This technique works for multiple POC efforts and then they cannot make excuses for not being able to support a simple "feed" based on some Excel spreadsheet. So this small enhancement has MULTIPLE  use-case scenarios and not just "ease of use" for "humans".

Everyone, make sure you VOTE UP; so Clarizen takes notice of "critical mass" surrounding a specific feature request.
