Date should not be compulsory field

While I understand the reason behind having a date column, not all data has a date column. Often times, it can be that there are multiple files and one has the date column. Sometimes, a date based analysis may not be necessary as well. However, if date is important there should be an option to automatically add today’s date or a date of one’s choice when required. This saves the time of adding the date column in the excel file and then uploading the data again.

I think there was an error with the data I uploaded. I didn’t get that issue when I refreshed the file. Although, some analysis tools such as descriptor may not require a date and hence, it should not be a compulsory field.
