Task Focused UI - Reporting Period Dropdown in Top Bar

In the current Task Focused UI, the user needs 5 clicks to change the reporting period:

- User (opens sidebar)
- Change reporting period (opens the popup)
- Open the dropdown menu
- Click on the desired reporting period
- Hit save

Which then refreshes the page, and also clears up any searches the user has.

Compared to the Standard UI, where the user needs 2 clicks (Attached: StandardUIDropdown):

- Click on the dropdown
- Click on the desired reporting period

When trying to find information from the past, the current workflow is comparatively very slow, which makes users switch to the old Standard UI when doing such tasks.

Seeing that in the OpenPages screen we do have a lot of space in the top bar (Attached: TaskforceTopBar), I suggest the dropdown menu to be inclued in this top bar alongside the other icons, instead of nested into the side bar and in a popup (Attached: TaskforceSuggestion).
