    I'm trying to copy a date and time into a date field that contains a time. I've followed all of these instructions. The date gets copied but not the time. Is this something I should be able to do?

    Here is a link to my Conditions statement

    I need to have a date and time for the Google Calendar integration for both the start and end date/time but I don't want to show date and time for each. I just want to get input for date, start time, and end time. I definitely don't want the user to put 2 different dates. Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately, that is not possible since concatenating two fields will make them in plain "text" value which the datetime field could not understand. I also tried to find a workaround, but could not find any.

    As you might have already tested, you may copy a datetime field to another datetime field also.

    ok - so let's try another way. Is there a way using CSS to copy the individual date and time into a combined Date/time field? I have never used CSS, but if you tell me the commands to use I can do it.

    Please note that CSS is only for styling/display. And no, we cannot use CSS to copy the data, you would need JS instead to do that, but you cannot insert JS into the form.

    You may however, embed the form into your website using the source code then hire a developer to create a script that can copy the values to another field.
