How to remove year using DateTime Quick Tools

    My company needs to collect anniversary date, but we only need month and day not year.  Can year be removed if we use the DateTime quick tool?  If so how?

    I tried to use a Configurable Widget and it kind of worked.  I did not make the field required so if the customer does not have an anniversary date, today's date is automatically picked.  If the customer does not have an anniversary date, it needs to stay empty. So I removed it.

    I know I could also use two different drop down fields - one for month and one for day, but when I export the submission to excel it puts the data in two fields.

    Any suggestions...

    You can hide the Year input using a custom CSS codes. However, that will just hide the input box, but will still submit the year value. Also, the field is required so you can't skip it.

    The workaround would be to use the Dropdown field. Then combine the two using our calculation widget. The calculation widget will serve as your single field for the two dropdown in the reports.

    Here's a sample form:
