Description

To reproduce

1) Create a new description using either the ISAD or DACS templates
2) Try to add 3 separate dates while in the edit template
3) Compare this with the process of adding dates in the RAD or DC templates

Resulting error

The ISAD and DACS dates widget does not have an "Add new" link that allows a user to repeat the dates fields, though this is present in the DC template, and in a different form, the RAD template as well.

Expected result

The dates widget in the ISAD and DACs template should have an "Add new" link for entering multiple date elements, similar to that found in the DC template.

See attached screenshots for comparison.

Temporary workarounds for any users encountering this issue:

1) every time you enter the ISAD or DACS edit template, there will be an additional field available in the Dates area for data entry. So you could enter a date, save, enter edit mode, enter another, save, etc.

2) Switch template to DC or RAD, enter multiple dates, save, switch back to ISAD and edit as necessary.

Hey Mike, has this work been merged yet? Not seeing it in qa/2.2.x. Maybe none of the accession work has been merged yet?
