Pavlvoia Survey - datepicker

I’m looking for a way to set a datepicker in a Pavlovia survey. Is there any recommended recipe?

I see that currently there isn’t an option to use SurveyJS’s datepicker type.

While an HTML solution seems to work, i was having trouble getting any format other than mm-dd-yyyy.

Many thanks!

I’ve added datepicker to our list of desired features.

In the meantime, please do not try to use html form elements. I am 99% sure that no data from them will be saved. I had a similar issue with a student who added html hours and minutes to a PSQI survey on Qualtrics and therefore didn’t get any data for those sub scales.

In the meantime, you could use a Multiple-Choice Matrix (as I do with the PSQI).

Hi Wake,

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to get the text Start in the button upon opening your survey? Mine just says Next and I haven’t changed anything in the survey settings - I can see the option Start but it just doesn’t show in the 1st page of my survey


First page is a start page :slight_smile:

I’ve just discovered that you can use single input for more than just text, including dates.


Thanks! I’ll look into it.
