Date Field

The Date Field can be used to store dates, date ranges and a date and time combination. The Text Field is most commonly used to store:

  • Schedules (e.g: the Event’s scheduled start time and end time)
  • Deadlines (e.g: the Project’s Deadline)

Note: You can visualize records with a set date in your calendar.

    You can choose your preferred date format when manually entering dates. This is done from the Profile Page.

    Today's date is taken as default when typing a date. This means you can type only part of the date and the rest will be added automatically. For example, assuming today is 30th May 2019:

    You enter Date input format Result
    5 Day > Month > Year 5th May 2019
    25 10 Day > Month > Year 25th October 2019
    11 Month > Day > Year 30th November 2019
    11 2 Month > Day > Year 2nd November 2019
    2020 Year > Month > Day 30th May 2020
    2020 7 Year > Month > Day 30th July 2020

    Note: You can use different separators between day/month/year. 5.10.2019, 5-10-2019, 5/10/2019 and 5 10 2019 will all result in 5th October 2019.
