3.8. How to add a date field to a PDF form
To save the time of your field team and eliminate possible typos, we suggest creating a designated date field in your PDF forms. This way your users will no longer need to manually type in the date when completing a PDF form in Fluix*. All they have to do is to pick a correct date from a nice calendar dropdown.
To add a Date Field to your PDF form follow the steps below:
Step 1. Open your PDF form in Adobe Acrobat Pro, choose Prepare Form mode and click on the Date Field as shown below:
Step 2. Having clicked on the Date Field, drag it to the designated place in your form:
Step 3. In the field Properties you can select the date format you’d like, e.g. mm/dd/yyyy:
Step 4. Save changes to the PDF form and upload it to the folder that is used in a workflow.
