Request dates in the declaration of interest form

Conflicts of interest often only need to be declared if they have occurred in the past 36 months. When authors complete the declaration of interest form, they are only asked if they have ever received funding/spoken for/ etc. from potential conflicted sources. There is no request for the date which these events occurred, which means the editorial bases have to follow up and enquire. It would help if the date was captured.

Could the title of the last column of the declaration of interest form be renamed to "Comments/date of event" or a specific field be added to capture the date?
