Query_string query not matching on date field

Our app is using a bool query that may have aquery_string string query in it.

When searching for date values I get no results from the query_string query but if I use a range query it works. Those two queries come from different UX parts (a general purpose query input for the query_string query and a date picker for the range query).

Having the app match documents consistently using both input methods would greatly improve the user experience.

So far I have tried entering the date in the query_string in different formats, even copying and pasting a value from the index, using a more complex query_string selecting one of the date fields and adding a multifield dynamic mapping for date fields.

Any suggestions on how to make the query_string query match documents based on a date field?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
