    Can you please tell me how I get a date to fill and complete in the Monday.com date field of the date a form is received? I have a date field but unable to map any data to it.


    TIA

    Thank you for contacting us, if you are trying to match a Date field type from Monday.com:

    With the Short Text Entry field(which you have labeled as "Date") from this form

    It won't work, because they are not the same type of field. So, you should use a Date Picker field instead of a Short Text Entry field:

    Let us know if you have more questions, we will be glad to assist you.

    Thanks for your reply but I am not looking for a date that is selected on the form. I am looking to populate a field on Monday with the date the form was sent/submitted/received?

    There is a workaround to still capture the Date the form was submitted. Please do the following:

    1) Add a Date Picker field.

    2) Click on Custom Date, so it will capture the date automatically:

    3) Hide the field: https://www.jotform.com/help/434-How-to-Hide-Form-Fields

    So, now you can pass that field to Monday.com. Let us if you need more help, we will be glad to assist you.
