What problem you are trying to solve? (is it in Contacts, Opportunities, Projects, Chrome Extension, Mobile, etc)
For customized date fields, the help text currently displays today's date, e.g. "09/29/2019", in light grey font. We had a hilarious situation today where we have a date field for Birthdays and a colleague thought someone had a birthday today :D.
Why it is a problem?
In a fast-paced environment colleagues might think that the help text showing today's date is the actual date inputted into the field.
What would the ideal solution look like?
Use "mm/dd/yyyy" instead to eliminate any chance of confusion :).
How big is the problem? (business impact, the frequency of the issue and who is impacted?)
Totally minor, just a cosmetic suggestion.
