Why?

This is about https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/query/advanced/ I guess.

I agree that something like this would be useful. Currently there is not even a hint about the date format expected. Users need to try blindly.

Phabricator has a date picker widget for forms, see https://secure.phabricator.com/uiexample/view/PhabricatorFormUIExample/. The Sprint app is using it in our instance.

A task upstream from someone willing to submit a patch has good chances of success imho.

Historically, the reason this control is free text is so you can type "7 days ago" to select a relative date, creating a filter which always shows the last week of activity.

We now have a mixed-mode control which supports relative dates but also provides a date picker for absolute dates, but it hasn't reached this UI yet.

@epriestley, is there any documentation around allowed input formats for date fields?
