Setting Date on many Google Analytics Connectors


I have a workflow that pulls data from 7 Google Analytics connectors.  In order for the data to be accurate, all of the connectors must be set to have the same start and end date.  I would like to add a way to set the start and end date on all of the connectors at the same time instead of indivudually setting them all.


I have tried connecting each Google Analytics connector to an "Action" tool, then connect that to either a "Date" interface, or "Text Box" interface where I just manually enter the date.  It gives me the error:


Tool#60: Oarse Error at char(0): Argument 2 of DATETIMEADD is not a string.

Tool#1: Tool #255: Parse Error at char(0): Formula: tried to apply string operator to numberic value (REGEX_MATCH)


I have tried the steps here with no success:


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
