I think maybe a macro would be better. Something like the attached. Save it to your macro folder (should be C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\RuntimeData\Macros).
Then it will be on your macro palette. Drop it on the canvas. Connect a file TO it, and select the date field you want to compare, and then select your start/end date. The output of the macro will be your filtered results.
I think this is what you're looking for. Let me know.
