Wouldn't your workflow be easier if you came home from a three week vacation and could just enter the start and end date and have a smart collection created for each date by catpure date?  

 

I have 5,200 photos of Portugal from 4 photographers and 6 cameras in front of me.  To begin to get a grasp of the story I want to tell I make a smart collection by date, 23 of them.  Workflow would be so much easier if I could pick a start and end date and have these made automatically.  

 

Thank you.

While waiting for Adobe to implement this, consider some alternatives:

 

Instead of using multiple smart collections, you could use the Date column of the Library Filter bar's Metadata browser:

The advantage of using filters is that they can be easily combined with any source (folder, collection, smart collection).  You can save date filter as a preset using the dropdown at the right end of the Filter bar.

 

If you want to create date filters very quickly, use the By Date command of the Any Filter plugin:

Thank you @johnrellis.  I used this too but ended up prefering something more permanent as there were four photographers and six cameras involved and I will want them to see them by day of the vacation.
