Can you please look at having a "TODAY" button on any of the calendars?
When creating custom reports, it usually defaults to the date you set it up and if it was a few years ago, it means you have to manually skip through the months when there should just be a 'TODAY' button there.
If you could also have the custom reports able to recongnise standard relative terms for dates.
ie. "last week" would give you the report based on the dates from 7 days previous to today, or "last year", "YTD", "last month" etc...
