First, let's look at the brand new and beautiful UI. It really couldn't be simpler to switch between months and years to jump to the date you need. You can also edit the date directly in the text area and the picker will follow along with you.
The date fieldtype will automatically adapt to your site's locale (set in
config/app.php), and display the date in the localized format and language.

We also have a new "Inline" mode if you want to only use the calendar view.
Rows and Columns
Don't like clicking and have some room to spare? You can set the number of rows and columns of months you'd like to fill out the screen. If you run out of room, it'll automatically collapse down to less.
You can now even set date ranges with the date fieldtype. No more need for a date field inside a grid just to set a start and end date.
And here's how that data is stored, in case you were curious.

And there you have it. Have a great weekend! 🌴️☀️
