Dates can be collected from customers using the date picker question type. Use this guide to learn what you can do with the date picker.

πŸ’‘ What you'll learn

πŸ’‘ Prerequisites

To pass dates to Octane AI's integrations, you'll need to connect the integration before your quiz begins collecting responses.

How to add a date picker to your quiz

To add a date picker to your quiz, follow these steps:

  1. From inside the quiz editor, click on Add page.

  2. Under QUESTIONS, select the "Date picker" option.

  3. Drag-and-drop the date picker to the desired place in your question order.

After a date picker question has been added to your quiz, you'll be able to customize its custom property which represents how the date will be passed into integrations like Klaviyo.

By default, dates collected in quizzes will be compatible with Klaviyo's date field.

πŸ’‘ Answering the date picker question

Customers can enter a date by selecting it from the date picker, or by entering a date manually. Only numbers can be typed in making sure that invalid formats won't be passed into your quiz or integrations.

Date format can be customized in the page settings.
