Date Time Fields

Overview

Create and Maintain a Date/Time Element

Details

There are three options for recording date and time, Date only, Time only, and Date and Time together. Each type of question presents a particular interface.

Web interfaces shown are from the Base bundle. Different bundles have the option to present different interfaces.

Date Only

Select a date by clicking on the day. Arrows along the top take you back and forth one month. The home icon brings you back to the current month. Dropdowns for month and year allow you to navigate larger changes easily.

Typing directly in the field is allowed with an expected format of mm/dd/yyyy. The answer is stored in ISO 8601 format - yyyy-mm-dd.

Builder Options

Two naming options and defaults are available for Date Only questions.

Name (required) - descriptive name used internally for the question.

Label (optional) - descriptive name presented to the customer.

Default Value - can choose from a static entered value, variable (Values, Space Kapp or Form properties, or Identity Information) or a value from a bridged resource.

After selecting the bridged resource, attributes are available in the Variables dropdown menu.

Time Only

Clicking in our standard Time Only question presents a dialog to select a time by the hour. You can also directly enter the time. Expected format is hh:mm. The customer can add AM/PM but the answer is always stored in 24 hour format.

Builder Options

Two Naming options are available for Time only questions.

Date Time Combined

This is a combination of the two previous questions. The Date operates the same and the time dialog slider is set to the right. If you just select the date, the time defaults to your current time. The expected format in the field is mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm. You can use either AM/PM or 24 hour time.

The answer is stored in ISO 8601 format - yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss+00:00.

Seconds are not set via the web console and are always set 00. The value after the + sign is the time zone offset. All values are store GMT (+00:00).

Builder Options

Two Naming options are available for Date Time only questions.
