    You can try using the Date Picker widget

    You can also use the Large Date Picker widget.

    Here's a guide on how to add widget to the form.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Thank you. Maybe I can explain better...

    I need to output a date in BOTH the "09-07-2016" format AS WELL AS something like "September 7, 2016" but I don't want the user to have to select the date twice... Does that make sense?

    Ah, you are asking about how to display the date that your customers have picked out. Yes, you can format the way your single DateTime field will output its selection as described in this guide:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/68-Using-Dates-in-Email-Templates

    Formatted output can be used in email notifications, and from what you are describing, you are simply looking to use both the regular {date} tag, and the US date tag {date:Date-US}.

    In your email notification or autoresponder where you are looking to format the date, simply copy the tag of your DateTime field, and add :Date-US inside of it before its closing } brace to make it display in US based date format.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
