Date/Time Selector

The Date/Time Selector is a way of inserting time or date stamps into your form. Please note, an alternative way to do this is by using the Auto Generate Field.
It is also possible to dynamically add days to the date. This is useful for tools like expiry dates or From and To dates where you don't want to have work out the second date.
Please note, as this field has advanced and progressed over several years, we are using 2 different date pickers based on the option you select.

BEFORE: In this example, we have picked the "Add Number of Days" field for this special option. Currently with no value set the date will remain 07/02/2021 which is the one it started with.
AFTER: We type 10 and hit return (to trigger the rules and actions), this subsequently adds 10 days to the "Choose Date" field.
