When test filing 8-K, any way to input a future date that is beyond test filing date?

    Hi Lan and welcome to the Community!  So, two things here. First, the reason you are unable to enter a future date for the 8-K is Wdesk complying with the EDGAR Filer Manual. Secondly, a form 8-K and its variants can have a future date for the period field up to the next business day from the date of submission, provided the time of filing is between 5:31 pm and 10:00 pm. EST. If you try to test or live file with a future date between 6:00 am and 5:30 pm EST the submission will suspend. Below is a list of the form types that you can and cannot file with a future date, found in the EFM. Hopefully this helps. Let me know if you do have further questions and thanks for your valued contributions!
