Date and time without using date picker


I’d like to save a date and time in the database without using the date picker.
Any idea how this works/which format I have to use?


Hi DSA, I’m no expert, but intuitvely you could store the date as freeform text. This is assuming the user case is to capture a user’s input date?

The big downside is date formats are very specific, so this approach comes with a high risk of user error (which is why the date picker is more preferable in Adalo!)

I assume the other option would be to commission someone for a custom marketplace component (if this is important functionality)

Hope this helps!

Just in case, you didn’t see this thread,

I build my own date picker using list.
