How to let your users enter a date in an easy way, especially when the date is well known to the user e.g. his date of birth? The solutions generally used – pop-up calendar or drop-downs for date parts or strict format text input – are not good enough. User has to spend a considerable amount of time in multiple mouse clicks, selecting appropriate item in the lists and typing numbers. Problem becomes worse if the date is well in the past or future.
SlickDate simplifies date entry to a very big extent. It is one textbox where your user can enter the date in a format of his choice. He can use any delimiter he wants or even omit in certain cases. He can enter month as a number or as a name. For dates in near past or in near future, he can even skip the year and the month – SlickDate automatically resolves to the closest matching date. Where there is ambiguity between day and month, SlickDate again resolves to the nearest date first but this can be configured as per the user behavior or preference.
In addition SlickDate provides some intuitive shortcuts to arrive at dates not well known to the user e.g. last week, next month, etc. Thus making it easier to enter the frequently used dates with minimum number of keypresses.
