How to use

Add a new block to your form and then select the question type Date. You can now customize this block to your needs with the following features.

Basic features

Each question block has basic features to present the block the way you need, for example Name, Description and Help text. And most of the question blocks have common options, like the Required and Exportability options.

More information about these basic features can be found in the help article about our form builder.

Additional features

On top of those basic features, the date block has the following advanced options:

  • Time

    By enabling the Time feature, you can let your respondents also enter a time with the date.

  • Range

    By enabling the Range feature, you can let the block ask for two dates, namely a From date and a To date. The form will automatically show two date fields if this feature is enabled.

    If enabled, you can also enter two separate Placeholders for the date fields in the form.

  • Limit values

    By enabling the Limit values feature, you can determine in between what dates the answered date(s) have to be. You can select the minimum and maximum date (including an optional time).
