When using the date field in a blueprint it’s very hard to change the date multiple years back/forward at once. The only option I found to change the year more than +/- 10 years is to click on the month-year heading in the date-picker and select the earliest available month-year combination. If I need to go back another 10 years I have to click on the month-year heading again and so on.
As we use the date field for date of birth it’s very tedious to go back multiple decades.
I also tried selecting the year part in the input and entering the date via keyboard, but this is not supported. Also the select which is shown when clicking on the year in the date field only shows +/- 10 years.
