Allow free time ranges within reports

ILMT should allow free defined time ranges for report like SubCapacity and AllMetrics, even if the end date is in the future. It will be possible to create and save predefined reports for e.g Q4/2022. The "create Snaphot" Button should be greyed out until the actual date is after the end date of the report.

    Current approach for generating audit snapshots in ILMT is to have the software asset manager review and validation of the report, apply necessary changes/configuration if needed and only then generate audit snapshot. Such review of the license usage report is a key benefit from ILMT and allows to identify any license compliance risks early and act accordingly. Because of this ILMT does not have capability of automated generation of audit snapshot. Also defining reports for audit snapshots in advance is not aligned with the desired usage pattern for the product.
