I was posed this question recently and wonder how others would approach this issue:
We often are told someone died in (for example) December 2018, but no day. The system won't let me enter it without a day. I don't like to just put 31st or whatever, because we do get queries from people looking up ancestry info. Is there any way to set it so it will take just a month/year combo without the date?
Thinking out loud: I could set up a custom date field that only shows month and year (but then what about the case where they are only told the year, not the month...). I suppose I could do separate fields, a dropdown for month and a text field for year. And then maybe if I use the new contact layout editor extension, I can even move these fields into more logical places than usual?
