Create a custom date field
If you’d like to have a customized date question (for instance, you’d only like to offer a short range of dates or the days of the week), you can simply use the Multiple Choice, Picture Choice or Dropdown question:
You may only want to collect a year input (vs day, month, and year). Use a Number question with a limited range or a Dropdown question for that. If you opt for the latter, you can simply copy and paste or type in all possible years (e.g. 1900 – 2015).
In case you want to add time in HH:MM format, simply create a Question group and add 2 Number questions:
- one for the hour, with a value range from 0 to 24
- one for the minutes, with a value range from 0 to 59.
