Datepicker

Important

Information and features vary according to the roles to which you belong and the permissions associated with those roles. For more information, contact your module manager or your campus support team.

The Datepicker question type lets people chose a date and time using a pop-up date picking calendar.

Tip

You can use actions to control if anything happens when the form user selects a particular date. For example, your form asks people about their intended graduation date. If they pick a date in the next six months, you might show them additional form questions related to their test scores and intended field of study. If they pick a date two years from now, you might show them additional form questions about when they'd like to attend a campus open house.

  2. Click Add Question.
