I was trying to import a number of meetings from a spreadsheet and kept getting caught up on the starting time (required field) format.

 

2 basic enhancement requests:

 

1. don't require 2-digit month and day or 4-digit year.  Example: permit 4/2/13.  Don't require 04/02/2013.  Assume anything > 90 for the year is 1990+ and anything less than 90 is 20xx.  It's "good enough" for 75 years! :)

 

2. Permit Date without time.  In most cases date is most relevant and time is less relevant.  Support both but if a user tries to import 4/2/2013, assume 04/02/2013 at 12:00:00 AM (if you need to store a time value).

 

Thanks.

Good suggestions. But... Don't you remember Y2K? :-9
