Date input re-enable year and month dropdown - as older date input component


The new date picker component is difficult to select year/month in the past/future, as we only are able to go left & right / back & forward one month at a time. It would be helpful to select Year and Month with a dropdown, as the older version had.

Usually users instantly click on the date field and the calendar opens and start clicking the back/forward arrow to select different year/month.

The component is smart but only useful when users know of its capabilities - unfortunately most users don't.

Thank you
