    Date string not returning date

    Asked by DavidGrayTV on June 03, 2017 at 01:40 PM

    I have used the calculation widget to create a date string but it doesn't update. Any ideas please?

    I cloned your form and noticed the Form Calculation Widget is hidden. For testing purposes, I disabled its hidden status so I can check if the dateString() function will work or not.

    Here's how the went from my perspective:

    You'd see that it worked as intended and converted 04/06/2017 to Sun Jun 04 2017. Can you tell us if you're still having issues?

    In case we misunderstood, just get back to us with a bit more info and a clearer description of what happens from your end so we can better assist you. You may also post screenshots if needed.
