Add @FinPeriodID as Default Value for Period schema fields in Generic Inquiry

In a Generic Inquiry, for date-type fields there are @-variables that can be used as Default Values (@Today, @MonthStart, @PeriodStart, etc). It would be very helpful to have the same thing for Financial Period type fields (such as when generating a Generic Inquiry of GL data) for the Current Financial Period much like =Report.GetDefExt('Batch.TranPeriodID') that can be used as a default value for Report parameters.

    You can use @period for fields that are date based, but not on fields like artran.finperiod.  It would be HUGE.  You could have update 2019R1 with only that feature and it would be worth it.

    Thanks for your idea and please take my apologies for the late answer. We'll consider implementing this functionality in the future.

    Also, there is a related idea about @Company and @Branch variables.
