Date fields

Learn more about the date field types.


A date will be displayed corresponding to the language setting of your Sophora DeskClient instance. The input field type Date is very versatile. First, you can choose between seven different picker types:

  • default: date and time (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM)
  • onlyDate: date (YYYY-MM-DD)
  • onlyTime: time (HH:MM)
  • timeWithSeconds: time (HH:MM:SS)
  • timeWithMilliseconds: time (HH:MM:SS.mmm)
  • dateAndTimeWithSeconds: date and time (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS)
  • dateAndTimeWithMilliseconds: date and time (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.mmm)

Date (simplified)

Contrary to the regular date field, this field does not provide a date picker. Instead, the user may enter arbitrary dates, e.g. "09/30/2017 2:55 PM" or "Sep 7, 2017". Please note that the date format is locale-specific.

Date (multi)

If you have added the keyword multiple to the property configuration, the property can store multiple date values at once. Nevertheless, the property configuration remains the same as with single properties - the settings will be applied to each of them.
