Date and time

The date and time field editors have four distinct flavours, providing the flexibility to capture the data you require.

Date A single date picker
Date and time A date and time picker
Date range Two date pickers to provide a range
Date and time range Two date and time pickers to provide a range

The date range editors become available when the format of a Date / Time field are set to range.

Note: Contensis does not support time without a date as we store date and times as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). While there may be some use cases for time on its own we recommend you use a text field with a regular expression for validation.
