Add more date operation in Data Refinery

Currently Data Refinery doesn't have default operation to manipulate date type data. For example, to manipulate date type of field by adding several days to the original fields, we need to use following custom code: mutate(ExpiryDate = as.Date(PurchaseDate + days))

Custom code for date operation is working fine in Data Refinery editor session but it could not be parse as correct codes when it run as a job. Actually, Data Refinery cannot support any code that does not comply with the template provided. And since currently there is no template for date operation, the jobs created by using this refinery flow are failed.

We are strongly request an enhancement to allow Data Refinery support date operations both in Data Refinery Editor session and when it run as a job.
