    For the time slider in Portal for ArcGIS and AGOL I would like to see the ability to set a default start date, so that the time slider is focused on the date when the webmap is opened. Currently the time slider quite sensibly starts at earliest date in the range, however for time aware data that covers a date range from historical through present and on to future (e.g. from historical jobs through to planned works) it would be good for the default time slider view to be at the current date so the user can instantly see the immediate view without having to drag the timeslider to todays date.  A setting to control this somewhere is what's required.
