Here is your file updated with the calendar control and some code to make it appear / disappear and fill in your cell.

PS EE doesn't allow xlsm so please overwrite the extension from xlsx to xlsm

Actually, the Microsoft  date time picker control is a better choice for you. Check out the attached file, which should also be renamed to xlsm.

You haven't enabled activex controls, which is what the date and time picker is. Check the following link to see how to do it and what it entails:

So, does this means that anyone who wants to use it has to enable active x controls

Yes, but you could put a macro that hides the control if they're not enabled. You wouldn't have the calendar, but you could enter the data manually.
