Harmonize date/time selectors throughout the system
There are inconsistencies in both the options for quick time selectors (Last 7 days - Last week - etc.) as well as the label used for date/time fields (time span - time interval - during - etc.). Also - in some places you are given a single calendar to select both the start and end date - and in others these are separate calendars.
We would like to harmonize the date/time selectors throughout the system to make them consistent.
Proposed quick selections
Last 7 days
Depending on the context - date/time selectors will have one of these three labels:
Please leave comments to let us know if the proposed quick selections cover your needs.

I recommend additional quick selections: "From year start to previous month end", "Last 15 days" and "Last 30 days"

User custom defined periods would be a very usefull/necessary feature in addition to hard coded ones.
"Custom period 1 title"> Drop down menu with year selection
"Custom period 2 title"> Drop down menu with year selection
"Custom period 3 title"> Drop down menu with year selection
For example, to display a specific fiscal year, we could select "Fiscal Year / 20##". "Fiscal Year" would correspond to an oct-sep period starting year 20##.
An other example would be "2st Quarter / 20##" that would correspond to an apr-jun period.
