There should be a preference to make a date only future.
When entering a date, it automatically defaults to the current year. Generally I enter dates for the future, which means I need to enter the year at least half of the time. The default should be future for one year, so from June 20, 2017 on, entering 6/19 should result in 6/19/2018 instead of 6/19/2017 as it does currently. At the minimum, there should be a preference for that.
