    Enable end users to enter date (dd/mm/yyyy) to search for records. V8.0

      Hi,

       

      I am going to publish a cross tab report to Tableau Server which my 2 end users will interact with.

       

      My report shows publications over time.

       

      My users will need to be able to display publications based on a date range they enter. They have stated that they do not want to use the sliders ( which I had created based on Date Range Slider Filter Within Dashboardshttp://community.tableau.com/thread/120072)  - instead they want to enter the date in dd/mm/yyyy format, or select from a calendar icon. The calendar icon is outside the scope of Tableau 8.0 (Im pretty sure !), so entering the dates would be perfect - the start date and end date in dd/mm/yyyyy format.

       

      Does anyone know of a way to implement this or am I restricted to the sliders option ?

       

      A sample workbook is attached.

       

      Thanks in advance for you time, Emma
