Inputting Date Range for Data Filter

5 - Atom

Hi there. Looking to see if I can get some help with the following (thanks in advance):


I have a dataset where one of the fields is just various, random dates. I want to be able to select a start date and an end date in a tool (maybe a text input tool), where I can then have the dataset filtered to only output the rows where my date field fits within the date range I input. Any ideas for this? Let me know if further clarification is needed.
