Create a way to clear the "Show new changes starting from..." setting
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Currently, there is no way to clear the "Show new changes starting from..." setting once you click it. The only ways are to a) edit the URL or b) use the back button. Even closing the page and logging out doesn't get rid of this setting.

There should be some explicit way to clear the setting. I was going to suggest that using the Trashcan and the Restore Defaults should do it, but I suppose it's possible that some users will want to keep that setting while perhaps adjusting their filters?

I'm copying Timo on this, since he is expert in practices on small wikis, where this function is probably more used. Timo, is this a thing that needs fixing, or do I misunderstand the feature?

I should have said I'm copying @Krinkle, so that he'll see the above question.

Checked in betalabs - the link 'Reset date selection' is added and it works as expected.

When clicked it will return to the initial view:
