    Drop Down/Radio/Check Box formatted as Date?

    Asked by familyformation on August 12, 2016 at 01:25 PM


    I'm trying to integrate my signup form with my mailchimp account. I'd like people to be able to select an event attendance date from a list, and use that date for automation with MailChimp. It looks like mailchimp isn't accepting the data from JotForm because it isn't formatted as a date, but rather as Text. 

    Is there any way to have the list options formatted as Date/Time? Otherwise, we'll have to manually enter the dates into mailchimp.

    I believe you are referring to this form: http://www.jotform.us/form/62205223013134

    If that is the case, it will not be possible, you are using a radio button field to show your dates:

    Show the dates in a regular Text field, and use a native DateTime field. You can limit the dates: https://www.jotform.com/help/337-How-to-Use-the-Limit-Dates-Option
