I had that problem too but off and on.  Sometimes it works and sometimes I get the date auto fill.

For what it’s worth, I’m having the same problem. Seems like you can’t enter any YYYY date and must enter YYYY-MM-DD.

I'm working with ArchivesSpace 1.2.0 and am having an issue with date type. At the collection level, after selecting a date type, the system is automatically filling in today's date. When I click on the field for "begin" and type 1954, a calendar for May 2015 appears and then 2015-05-27 automatically fills the field after I click outside of it. The same happens for the end date. In addition, it doesn't matter what type of date I use.

I'm attaching two screenshots.

Has anyone else had this issue? I have not had a problem at the series, subseries, or file level.

Thank you for your help.
