Hi Lydia,

Thanks for pointing this out. This bug was previously reported (see https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1333) and is fixed for the next release. In the interim, you'll definitely want to advise your users to avoid selecting "Range" when creating dates in the RDE.

Good morning!
In the Rapid Data Entry drop down lists for Date Type, we have “Range” as well as "Inclusive."  Besides sometimes being a little confused about when it would be best to use one over the other, I realized that Range is not included in the conventional entry date drop-down at all, and when I revisit RDE objects with Range, the Date Expression was automatically changed to “other” from our default “creation.”  It sounds like Range would like to be phased out completely (if going off of the conventional entry), which would streamline and clean up data.  If so, could the RDE Range drop-down option just be killed, to avoid confusion?  Thanks for your help!
