Hello we are using our board as a tool to collect travel information.
So lots of dates being gathered here, birthday, departure, arrival, passport expiry. So we love the ease of the date format on entry - except that it defaults to the current date… and when people skip this field, it incorrectly submits the current date without an error to the user.
There is no error generated on form submit, even though its a required field because it defaults to the current date. It shows the date pre-filled in on the form view as well, which may also be assisting them to “assume” they already filled out the date. We are getting a large number of errors that we then need to go and reconfirm info with.
To get around this, we use the text column instead, and put the desired format ie: YYYY-MM-DD in the description field. However they ignore it, and we get all types of formats instead. Leaving us to wish for some way to validate the form fields. (A different feature request I am sure you have received already)
Thank you for your continued improvement of this tool!
