Set your own Date format preference when collecting data

For certain clients, collecting data can be problematic when their respondents are using devices in different time and date formats, which from time to time can cause confusion with the Date format of the data when received.

So we‘ve come up with a way that enables client administrators to override the conflicting formats from various devices and assign their own preference for data collection.

From now you have the following options available: 

  1. Ability to set the prefilled date format
  2. Ability to set the prefilled time format
  3. Set the Date & Time component within Date or DateTime

 

The options for date settings are:

  • Device Default
  • EU - day/month/Year (31/05/2018)
  • US - month/day/Year (05/31/2018)
  • Dotted (31.5.2018)
  • Programming (2018-05-31)

 

The options available for Time settings:

  • Device Default
  • 12-hour - am/pm (3:23pm)
  • 24-hour - (15:23)

 

 

For more information on how to set the date format check out the Prefilled response name help page or Date and Time component.
