    It actually comes with the default date. So, all you have to do is to edit that date. I am not sure why you think that's so difficult?

    Fair enough. It's not immediately obvious though ... ones looking for a calendar pop-up or something ... and then you see the date and think ... "Oh have I inadvertently set that to expire kind of nowish?"

    Those were my thoughts ... love the feature ... ask a few people who don't know and watch them edit it ... bet they sit there for ages first ;-)

    Tell me I'm wrong and I'll happily .... accept I'm wrong

    Thanks for your input.

    Yes, always prefer a calendar to manually typing dates. Typo risk is much higher.


    Specifying the time zone of the expiry is key, too.

    Thank you for your input/vote. A ticket has already been assigned to our developers and I am sure that they are already aware of this. We just can't provide you an ETA.

    Thanks again.

    Are you going to pop the calendar picker in here instead of having to type out the date ... which could goof if in different timezones

    Thanks Mark

    Hello Mark, I've sent a message to our developers to follow-up with this so right now I'm not sure of the status of this but we'll certainly fill you in as soon as something more is known.
