I want to setup a new custom field which wont be one specific date (or date/time) but a range: Like 08/05/2016 through 08/15/2016. The only way I've found so far is define two custom fields 'start date/time' and an 'end date/time'.
Well the first thing that comes to mind is that I put the Calendar on the Dashboard. Discrete dates show up as 'issues' on the start and end dates only. Yes, the next step would be for the calendar folks to adopt the 'range' functionality and show the 'issue' on each day of the range.
Well, this wasn't my question originally, but seeing as it's been more than a year and the OP didn't answer, I'll add my two cents.
If you have two independent fields, they show up on the calendar as entries on those exact dates only. A date range would show up as entries on the first date and last date, and also on all dates in between.
For example, if I'm making a vacation request to have October 1st through October 7th off, using separate start and end fields would result in a calendar entry on the 1st and another on the 7th. But for the calendar to be accurate about when I'm actually on vacation, it would need to show entries on October 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
