    Yes it is possible. You just need to edit the date format, on the field properties:

    Instead of mmddyyyy your can have yyyymm.

    Kindly let us know if you need more assistance.

    @MESAR

    Because the month selected is in words, naturally, the results will also be in words.

    Therefore, there is no way to transform July 2001 to "2001/07"

    Instead, you can use the DateTime field, then disable time and the day sub-field using custom CSS.

    Let us know if you need help with this solution.

    Best regards

    what is the input of the day if i want to take it off ?

    Should be something like this :
    #input_13_day { display: none; } #sublabel_day { display: none; }

    These codes should do it:

    #month_22 + span, label[for="day_22"], #input_22_pick {
        display: none;
    }

    Let us know how it goes.
