This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit APP-I-4665 I want the external release date to match the internal release date but still round to a time period such as quarters..
When using external dates on reports, it sorts based on the precise date hiding behind the external date shown on the record MM/DD/YYYY. The internal date, doesn't change that external date if you display it in months, quarters or halves, and the releases you're most likely to change the dates on are the ones that are far enough out that you're likely to show them in vaguer expressions. It's easy forget to update both dates if you move a release date, and when we publish roadmaps we have PMs and BAs trying to troubleshoot why releases are showing up in strange order even though their internal dates are correct.
Ideally update both together, or at least provide a warning when they're out of sync.
