    How do I get a drop down for dates?

    Asked by Butler2016jform on March 21, 2017 at 03:34 PM

    I have a birthdate date field on my form that is frustrating with the calendar because there isn't a super quick way to get to years and years in the past. 


    My thought is that I'd like to have a drop down menu with the month, day, year.  Do I have to do that manually with a drop down form or is there a format I can use on date that allows it?

    Hello Kimberly,

    We have a widget for Birth Date field. Here's how to add it to your form:

    1. Open your form and click the +Add Form Elements button. 
    2. Go to the Widgets tab and search for Birth Date Picker widget then drag it to your form. 

    Hope that helps. If you have questions, please message us again.

    Thank you.
