Description

While it may be obvious to me because I've been using these graphs for a while, someone who has not seen them before may be confused about the date format for selectors on the graphs.

Maybe we can add a tooltip or similar hint.

An easy fix would be to use HTML 'placeholder' attribute for the input 'tag'.

Not sure whether an HTML placeholder would work here. The input field already contains default values that the user can edit. I guess the ask is to explain the date format when people edit the dates.

A tooltip might work. What's the HTML for adding one, again?

Another option could be to write "Start date (YYYY-MM-DD):" as field label.

Yet another option would be use a date selector as on the ExoneraTor page.

Please choose one! :)
