Date and time input fields

Date & time fields are ideal for collecting individual dates (such as a birth date) and times (such as an appointment time). Users can enter a date/time using the built-in date and time pickers, or manually enter them in the formats you choose.

Example of a Date & Time input field


Display properties

  1. Short Name: a label for your question as it appears on the workpad and in your reports. This does not display on the public form or survey.
  2. Question Text: the text label that appears on your form or survey. Use the rich text editor to add instructions or ask a question.
  3. Date Format: select the date format for your responses (e.g. MM/DD/YYYY, YYYY/MM/DD, etc.)
  4. Time Format: select the time format for your responses. If you do not want to record a time, select "Not Used".
  5. Required: indicate whether or not this is a required field.
  6. Hidden: indicate whether or not to hide this field when the survey or form is loaded. A field rule can be used to unhide this based upon responses in another field.

Advanced Customization

  1. Group ID: field groups allow you to show or hide multiple fields at once using field rules.
    • To add a new group, click the Add Group button, give the group a name, and save.
    • Otherwise, choose an existing group from the dropdown menu.
  2. CSS: you can customize the appearance of this field by adding CSS code. Enter only the CSS properties (such as color: red;); do not add selectors or <style> tags.
  3. Reporting: choose whether or not you want the field to display in your form or survey's data report and how you want it to appear.
    • Width: enter how wide you want this field's column to display in your report's data table. Enter the number of pixels you want to use. To automatically size the column, enter 0 (zero) or leave the field blank.
    • Display this column in table?: select this option to include the field in your report's data table.
    • Allow wrap in table display?: select this option if you want to allow text in this column to wrap in your report's data table.
