Time delimiters expanded for the from/to on the ALA panels - Accept '.' in addition to ':'.

The "Log range Start/End on the tools panels only accepts the colon(:) on the time delimiters. SDSF/JES indicates STARTED time on jobs with the dot(.) delimeter. Changing to allow the dot(.) would expedite the copy-paste filling in of these values especially during time sensitive UNDO situations.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? All customers who are used to seeing time specified as and having to key time into these fields can copy-paste or enter as long experienced and not have to experience an error from something so minor as a delimiter.
How should it work?

Have the edits accept time in either hh:mm:ss or format.

Idea Priority Low
Priority Justification Normal work around is to manually change the delimiters. This is a nice to have especially if circumstances required more timely use of the product such as an UNDO scenario.
