Date selection

  • Click the page to which you want to add a question
  • Click Add question
  • In the Name box, type the question or field name (forms), e.g. ‘Date of birth’
  • [Optional] In the Comments box, enter your comments or provide additional information about the question
  • If answering the question is required, select the box under Required. Respondents will receive notification when they did not answer the question.
  • Select the type of question: Date selection

If the question requires a date selection, choose one of the following answer types:

  • Year – Select this option when respondents need to enter a year, e.g. their year of birth
  • Month / Year – Select this option when respondents need to enter a month and a year
  • Day / Month / Year – Select this option when respondents need to enter a date, e.g. their birth date

The respondent can select a year, or a month and a day. The advantage to selecting an open question in which a date is entered is that someone can select a date and does not have to type anything. It is therefore less error-sensitive. However, it is not possible to set a period limitation.
