The Date/Time question lets respondents record a date and time. The Date/Time question can be set to be as general as a month and year or as precise as a date and time down to the seconds. Give respondents the option to specify a timezone or click a button to record the current date and time.
To set up a date time question:
- Drag and drop a datasource question from the Basic Questions section of the palette to the canvas.
- Phrase your question in the Question Title and optionally add an Extra Description.
- Configure your question’s Options to set the format of your datetime and whether or not you will include a Record Now button or allow respondents to specify a timezone. See below for details.
- Configure your question’s Display settings. See below for details.
- Save your survey.
