We’re beavering away on the next version of Typeform. If you’re a v2 Beta Tester, use the tabs on the left to switch articles.

Date field

You need to ask for birth dates, add an appointment scheduler or test your respondents’ knowledge about historical days? You can do all that with the Date field!

Date field 01

Date field 02

We offer the 3 most popular date formats used worldwide:

  • Month-Day-Year
  • Year-Month-Day
  • Day-Month-Year

Date field 03

You can select your preferred format from the Structure dropdown.

You can also set the separator by picking one from a list of icons:

Date field 04

Finally, as always, you can add photos, animated GIFs or videos to this Question type, as well.

Please refer to the article How to set Logic Jumps? to learn how to use Logic Jumps with the Date field.

Create a custom date field

If you’d like to have a customized date field, 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, the Picture Choice or the Dropdown question type.

In our example we used Picture choice and added icons for the days:

Date field 05

You may only want to collect a year input (vs day, month and year). Use a Number field (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, value range from 0 to 24
  • one for the minutes, value range from 0 to 59.
