    My users using mobile are unable to launch a scroller to select the dates in a faster manner. They are having to press back to find the dates, from month to month. Especially cumbersome when an older folk is trying to find his birth date in 1950s :D.

    Example (1): On Huawei P30 Pro, Chrome Browser
    Example (2) and (3): On Iphone Xs, Chrome Browser

    How can we standardize an efficient calendar picker for mobile users?

    Unfortunately, each browser and device have their own system default layout for certain types of fields.

    You may instead use a Short Text field, set an input mask and placeholder to guide the user of the date format you want.
