There are two Date fields that sound similar but have one important difference. Date fields allow you to pick a date from the Date picker in any of your forms. This field is recommended to store dates only. The Date time field will allow you to pick a date and a time from the date picker, it is perfect to set as a due date field for Tasks or for any other important actions that need to be completed
Configuring a Date Field
Give your field a name and add a field hint if desired. You can then select the section in which the field will be created or keep the default option.
The field type must be set to 'Date'.
If desired, you can set a default value for all new records. Team members will have the option to override the default value if needed.
Date fields can also be calculated. Just enable the 'Calculated' checkbox and add your custom code in the space available for it.
Enable the 'Required' checkbox if the information for this field is mandatory. It means that if you enable this option, every time a team member creates a new record, they will need to input a date for this field in order to save it.
If you enable the 'Lock After Create' as its name implies, the field will be locked once the new record is saved and the value of the field will not be editable afterward.
Once you are done setting your field, click the save button.
Note: All new fields are added at the bottom of the form.
Configuring a Date Time Field
Follow the same steps described in the section above, the only difference should be the type, that must be set to 'Date Time'.
