Hello @innov2e,

I as I know it is only possible to set the Date/Time field to Timestamp:

So, it seems we need to apply JavaScript code. 

I can suggest 2 options:

1) To use only JavaScript,

2) To use an external library.

 

The first solution is to add the following code to the Footer section on the Configure Search Fields page. Please don`t forget to disable the HTML editor before pasting:

<script>
document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

//Select the Criteria input fields 
const dateFrom = document.querySelector("#Value1_1"); //need to change the ID depending on the order number of the field
const dateTo = document.querySelector("#Value1_2"); //need to change the ID depending on the order number of the field

//Today 
const date = new Date();

const todayDay = `${date.getDate()}`.padStart(2, 0);
const todayMonth = `${date.getMonth() + 1}`.padStart(2, 0);
const todayYear = date.getFullYear();

const today = `${todayMonth}/${todayDay}/${todayYear}`;

//Three months prior
const datePrior = new Date(date.setMonth(date.getMonth() - 3));

const priorDay = `${datePrior.getDate()}`.padStart(2, 0);
const priorMonth = `${datePrior.getMonth() + 1}`.padStart(2, 0);
const priorYear = datePrior.getFullYear();

const datePriorFinal = `${priorMonth}/${priorDay}/${priorYear}`;

// Assigning values 
dateTo.value = today;
dateFrom.value = datePriorFinal;

});
</script>

The only change is to select the correct IDs.

If the Date field is the first one on the Search form, then IDs are #Value1_1 and #Value1_2 as in the example above. 

If the Date field is the second one, then IDs are #Value2_1 and #Value2_2, etc. However, it`s better to inspect the page. 

 

! With this solution, for example, if Today is May 31, 2022, then the date that is calculated as 3 months before is March 3, 2022. 

To test the output you may pass the date like this: 

const date = new Date('May 31, 2022');

The second solution is to to use the momentjs library that is available via the link https://momentjs.com/

For example, you may open moment.min.js. , copy the code:

And paste it to the Value section of the App parameter:

The code in the Footer section:

<script>

[@app:moment_min_js] // app parameter

document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

//Select the Criteria input fields 
const dateFrom = document.querySelector('#Value1_1');
const dateTo = document.querySelector('#Value1_2');

//Set dates
const today = moment().format('L');
const threeMonthsPrior = moment().subtract(3, 'months').calendar();

//Assign values
dateTo.value = today;
dateFrom.value = threeMonthsPrior;

});
</script>

 

! The output with this solution is different. 

With the same example, when Today is May 31, 2022, the date that is calculated as 3 months before is February 28, 2022.
