    Proposal for DOB: Numbers should be used instead of English month names

    Asked by mariobuonocore on September 17, 2011 at 09:55 AM

    I have a proposal about the field "date of birth": could you possibly use numbers (1-12) instead of the names of the months in English? I think this is a good solution for people who use the form in other languages. Thank you for your attention.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I added it to our feature requests list.

    One temporarily solution might be to use full form source code. Then edit the code and replace the month names with your language or replace them by numbers.  

    Here is how you can get full form source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Code"

    3. Click on "Source" button and copy it to your web site.
