New DatePicker Component is Difficult to Pick Dates

The new date picker component is difficult in picking dates, you're only able to go left & right / back & forward one month at a time:


Other Date components like the old date time, date range components allow you to either click the Month or Year to roll up and then select from a higher level:

Can we add this functionality to the date component? A lot of dates we pick are far in the past or the future. Right now users are selecting a random date and then typing it, which kind of defeats the whole picking.


Hi @Nicolas! We're planning to add an easier way to jump to a different month in a future update, though we don't have a specific timeline at the moment.

In the meantime, typing the date is the fastest way to pick something in the far past/future. The input accepts almost any format you throw at it — you can even enter phrases like "one year from now". You can also use the up/down arrow keys while holding Shift to quickly cycle through months.

+1 for this request. It'd be great to be able to just select a month or a year.

while we're improving the datepicker, can we please have the option to change the first day of week from Sunday to Monday?
