Date ranges can be entered and displayed as creation date so that approximate dates can be given where an item was created over a period of time

Many of our research projects have data items / artefacts with uncertain dates of provenance, this information can currently be recorded on Figshare at the moment using custom metadata fields to indicate 2 dates for a range.

However, discoverability is the issue, especially if a viewer of a collection was trying to narrow thousands of records down via year.

I'd accept you still need the 'Posted by' date and this would remain untouched, and I assume this would be achieved by having additional custom metadata fields which were date input fields.
