Calendar Dropdown

    Hello,

    Have any of you seen anything like a calendar drop down or pop out for selecting a date? I’m wondering if it would be possible to add to a date form field in some way instead of just typing in the date per the format required. If it would be crazy complicated to make, that is enough of an answer for me as well. Thanks!

    You can do that with a Custom Date column.
    No need for JavaScripting.

      Awesome, thanks Doug! Do you know if there is there a way to display data from a custom column on a page?

        Great questions @rebecca-yu !

        Not sure how much information you are looking to display/what level of detail (individual markups vs summaries), but at a minimum you can include your custom columns in a Legend on each page.

        Oh you want to display it on a page?

        I’m not sure that’s really possible without JavaScript.
        Might be possible within a Stamp however.

    It’s not elegant, but using a Legend I can get the date text from the custom column that I’m looking for to display. It’s tricky because the Legend wants to include everything by default, but I got it to work. Thank you both for your ideas!

      Once you get your initial legend set up, save it to a tool chest.
      You should be able to reuse it from there
