    I assume you are talking about the Deutsch version of the calendar (Date/Time) field.

    Please let me forward this to our devs so they can make the proper changes asap.

    In the meantime you can edit the JS file  calendarview.js

    That's possible when you download your form's full source code Files downloaded includes calendarview.js under js folder, open that file to notepad or any editing tools you have (example: notepad++) and then search/edit for the month and day names. Check this screen:

    Save it and upload the files to your host.

    Yes, it concerns the german (deutsch) calender field.I tried to download the code, but there is a "cannot create zip- file" error.

    But i recognized in the source code field, that the field "Donnerstag" (thursday) is defined as "hintergrund" (that's not realy a day name!)

    Please can you fix this as soon as possible, because it looks that now every german calender is wrong, isn't it?

    I have just fixed the translation. It may take a while before this would take effect on the form.

    I will also leave this report ticket opened so our developers will be able to confirm this.

    About the error when downloading the form source code, I have moved it on a separate thread here https://www.jotform.com/answers/611749. We'll be on it shortly.

    thx for feedback.

    may i ask, who long it will take the calender to show up correctly?
    because it is a bit embrassing that actually visitors of my homepage will not see the correct version.

    all the best

    We have just fixed the issue. However, unfortunately it won't change past date fields, but all new date fields will have the correct day name, Donnerstag and thus "D".

    Thank you very much for letting us know!

    Kind regards
