    That's not currently doable in the form builder. Initially, I was going to suggest Google Spreadsheet integration but I subsequently discovered that due to the compound nature of the field (both date and time in a single field) it's not possible to edit the format without removing one of the elements.

    What I could do is submit a ticket to request the feature. What is your preferred format?

    this doesnt make sense at all!

    somehow jotform submission dates is one format...  and the date entered from the calender tool is in a different format that google speadsheet does not recognise.

    is there a way to get a datevalue so one can do simple calculations like numbers of days between submission and customer entered target dates?

    if i add a calender tool to my form later... do i have to intergrate it into a NEW spreadsheet altogether?

    is there no way of adding it to an existing integration? my staff will think i m nuts if keep sending new spreadsheets to bookmark!
