Custom Field, Searchable Date

Hello.

Using the Asset Tracker module with RT, trying to get a custom field
(date) working in a searchable form. We want to capture the service
contract expiration and run reports on expired/about-to-expire pieces.
I’ve seen the patch from…
http://rt3.fsck.com/Ticket/Display.html?id=8721
…but I’m not having any luck applying it. Can anyone confirm this
works in 3.8.4?

Seems to be a basic item, any plans to put this into the trunk?

Thanks.

Just an FYI for any others in my boat, it looks like CustomField type
Date is slated for the 3.8.5 release…

The bug/patch is tagged as ‘for review in 3.8.5’ not ‘going to be
included in 3.8.5’. It isn’t guaranteed to be in a release until it
is committed to 3.8-trunk and is included in the final release.
