Just so I'm clear (because I'm not sure I understand):

The field takes one date as input.
The date is intended to be a due date.
The returned list would be all projects due by that date or up to 180
days before that date.

Correct?

If so, "Due On or Before" or something similar.

The date becomes a search condition for generating a list of projects that are within a 180 days of their due dates. This date was recently the system date. We called it the “run date” then because it was always the date on which the report was generated. But the clients wanted the date value changed so they could enter any date they want (within limits). We’re still calling it the run date or, informally, the “as-of” date since the list of projects generated is “as of” the date entered. I’ve also thought of “point-of-reference date,” “reference date,” or “post date,” but nothing seems to have caught on.
