The date question type lets respondents select a date from a calendar.
You can set the start and end dates, and you can also prevent respondents from choosing a date in the past, or prevent respondents from choosing a date in the future.
In addition to the settings outlined above, you can also add a placeholder, set the question as required and add a note.
Combined with the time question type, you can create powerful surveys, questionnaires, polls and forms with advanced date/time selections.
Here are some example questions showing how the date question type will display to respondents:
How to add a date question type
01 When on the ONFORM editor, click the "+" button and select "Question"
A new question block will then load
02 Click on the "Question Type" dropdown and select "Date"

This is the question that will be asked, and which respondents will choose a date in response to.
04 Set a start date (optional)

The additional settings available are:
- Note (allowing you to provide additional supplementary information)
