What is the best way to extend 7.0 search to include date fields when searching for Invoices?

Accounting -> Customers -> Invoices.

Typing a date or partial date does not find any invoices.

When you enter the first two digits (the month in the USA) of the date, it suggests a Period match, but never a Date Invoice or Date Due match.

It is the same way it was done for 6.1.

Create an inherited view that adds the field you want to search for.

In the case of Invoice searches, I created a view that inherited account.invoice.select and added this XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <field name="user_id" position="after">
        <field name="date_invoice" />
        <field name="date_due" />
