    Date formatted incorrectly

    Asked by MarilynLitt on May 01, 2013 at 12:29 AM

    I just got a form submitted that should be MM/DD/YY and it is DD/MM/YY


    The unique ID is 765 on this record.  We have done thousands of records with no error until now.


    This is from our FOUND form


    Thank you

    Hi Marilyn,

    Good day! That is maybe just a type error on user's end while submitting the data. This type of issue usually happens if the user browser's Javascript is disabled. The format error never comes out if Javascript is disabled.

    You may consider adding this script to your form to let them know about such case;



     Your Browser Javascript is DISABLED! Please ENABLE to Proceed! Thanks


    Add this script using our Free Text HTML field on top of your form:



    Let me know if you need help with this - I'll be happy to help.
