Meter Reading Submission - Better if we could 'date' them

More of a suggestion really (unless anyone can tell how to do it?)
We live in an apartment block where meters are in a locked cupboard. The landlord periodically notes meter readings (every couple of months) and this if our only route to get a reading. As such, when Bulb requests a reading from us, the latest one we get is often 5-6 weeks old. It would be great if we were therefore able to submit a ‘date taken’ with our meter readings so that you have accurate values!

Agreed. Given this is such a basic obvious feature, it’s odd that it’s missing.

The “challenger” companies in the finance / energy sectors have the distinct advantage in being about to build their systems from scratch and not rely on ancient code. Why then do they often get the basics so shockingly wrong?
