The Date Picker Field allows users to select a date from a calendar. This field type is mostly used for entering time periods such as a start date, and to display the entered date on the Element detail page in the yyyy-mm-dd format.
The Date Picker widget is displayed as follows in the create/edit form of an Entity.
After the user clicks in the field, the calendar popup opens in a small overlay.
How to add a Date Picker Field to an Entity?

What configuration options does the Date Picker Field provide?
You have multiple configuration options for the Date Picker field.
Configure a reminder notification
To help your users stay engaged, you can choose to add a Reminder Notification that is dependent on the configured date picker.
Set a default value for the date picker
The default value for the Date Picker is mostly used together with the Reminder Notification (see above). You can do so by:
- Checking the checkbox Set a default date. (1)
- Selecting a value for the Default Date (2). The default value will be set, depending on the creation date of the Element (example: Current Date → Date of Element creation). Note: This will only apply to Elements that are created after the definition of the Default Date.
