Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting;
  2. Select Any job requisition;
  3. Go to Job Posting Page and click the date selector;



This is the expected behavior. Our product uses different date selector components, however, it was noticed the version with the "Use Today's Date" had some issues to translate the date to the correct format when using languages like Russian. In order to avoid this issue, the component is being migrated to a newer version that does not have this same functionality. 


When clicking the date selector, the current day is highlighted once the recruiter clicks on the current date, the system will populate this information in the box. Which means this represents the same number of clicks as when the Use Today's date was presented. This will not represent any functionality loss to the system neither will decrease Recruiter efficiency. 

Here is how the system highlights the current date:
