Date Range Previews should use relative dates (e.g. say Yesterday/Tomorrow)

Simple feedback: Use relative time whenever its appropriate

Longer: What is particularly useful about date ranges is the due date, and its really useful to know when something is due ‘Today’, but its not useful for looking ahead. Currently one of my tasks is due tomorrow, but unless I actively connect the dots of ‘Mar 6th’ and ‘Mar 7th’ I’m going to come in tomorrow and see that I have a task due. Similarly, it would be useful to replace ‘Mar 5th’ with yesterday. Other ways of looking ahead could be useful, but ‘Tomorrow’ would be a great start if I had to see one thing implemented.

Great feedback @Fonti, thank you so much for taking the time to share it with us! While I can’t promise anything at that stage, we will certainly keep this idea in mind for future updates!

I’d also like to see relative dates in date ranges. It’s hard to prioritize my My Tasks list without having to look at a calendar. Having relative days (like Friday–Sep 2 instead of Aug 28–Sep2) would be soooo helpful and save me a ton of time.
