We've heard scattered comments for awhile now from people asking us to address this, especially from a few customers who regularly ask their employees to forecast launch dates, project completion dates, etc. In response, we've recently created a new type of market, aptly named "date market." Essentially these work the same way as our futures markets but instead of seeing a number in the trading assistant, you see a date:
Currently creating a date market is not available to everyone as we are still doing some testing, but you can trade in one. I just started one a couple days ago and will create a couple others soon:
Let us know what you think. If we don't hear anything disastrous, we'll probably make these available for everyone to start using in the next week or two.
