I have an idea:

Add "Today" link to date picker user input control

Add a simple "Today" link next to the date in the user input control, so the user doesn't have to open the date input and navigate to today. Saves a click for almost everyone that uses the control, and is particularly useful when a user loads the dashboard for the first time and the control defaults to something like Jan 1, 1969.

    I agree. it is very convenient for our user to load the latest information automatically instead of choosing the date manually.
    Besides, if we use two date pickers for the user to setup a period, we also want to be able to set a limitation on how many days maximum the period can be, such as, we want the user to choose period no more than 3 months, otherwise, the user can choose whatever date they want, and very often, we 't keep the data for a long ago.

    In addition, the option of more "dynamic" options would give this a lot of flexibility. So instead of having to manually change something when it accumulates too much data (or becomes out of date if you have static dates) you could have options such as "Today", "30 Days Ago", "Beginning of Quarter". Things like that.

    I agree strongly with Srinivas, UIC that are Date Pickers should automatically default to the session date. This isn't how it currently works, particularly on mobile, I am required to select the klip and set the date.

    Yeah this is very useful functionality - generally we want to reset the date pickers to default date when new session is opened.
