Hi Michael, I'm just trying to figure out the best way to compare years to determine past/future tense in the output. Is it okay to hard code the present year to use for comparison, or should we use something like the existing 'date' command from Bash? Thanks, Alexandra

Hi Alexandra, Given the actual range of survey dates, and the fact that we are coding this now, I took the pragmatic view that 2022 (and earlier) is past, while 2025+ is future. Still, nice idea. Cheers MichaelW 👨‍🎨
