Thanks great to hear!!!!!

May I pull your attention to the discussion
about missing standard filters here

OpenERP new search views are such a nice tool  but we often search for the 
wrong data (in respect of time related data) :-(

"Analysis" means data in the past
Companies reporting and planning periods are
* week
* month
* quarter
* half year
* year

and we ALWAYS need 
* current (to compare how much we have reached already)
* last (to report completed periods)

Example the manager comes into the office today (1.Sept) clicks on "this 
month" --> no data
** what he/she really needs is "Last Month" - same is valid for all other 
periods and also for printed reporting.

I admit that most data can be also searched using date from/to but that is not 
really comfortable and should be avoided and used only for eccentric reporting 

I have put this already in many blueprints and bug reports, but I count on you 
Aline to push this issue.

I think it's not that much work because the technique is here, but would 
increase the usability and acceptance a lot.
