Add Predefined Periods to Calendar Control

I wanted to default display this fiscal years' data for a number of linked reports on my dashboard. The reports are already created but there isn't a prompt specifically formatted for each report that is setup for predefined periods. If someone wants to look at a specific date range, then it would be necessary to have two prompts, one for date range and another for predefined periods. I don't think that there is a good business reason to keep the two prompt styles separate. I would like to get rid of the need to have a specific prompt for the sole purpose of predefined periods. I envision predefined periods as a drop down beneath the calendar pop-up. When someone chooses the predefined period, the dates are then populated into the calendar control. Then, just as I can set a dynamic date as the date default, I should be able to set 'Financial Period' as an option for the dynamic date.
