Most of my tables are sorted by chronological date. I’m having two issues with Airtable’s handling of dates that currently functions better in Google Sheets.
In Google Sheets, I prefer ISO format for dates, but can enter a date of September 8th simply as “9/8” hit return and the date willl convert to “2017-09-08” automatically. Although I prefer ISO dates, typing the full year and hyphen can become tedious after filling a multitude of fields.
In Google Sheets, if I have a range of dates, for example, all the days of the month of September, I can create the first cell of 2017-09-01, and in the bottom right corner if I drag down then it will autofill in date chronologically (2017-09-02, 2017-09-03, etc.)
Would be ideal if Airtable devs could implement these features.
