Month Year date view

Hello,

Is it possible to display only month and year when using the date widget?
How can this be done?

Kind regards,

Hi Sam,

As far as I know this is not currently supported on CommCare. You could
post the idea on Uservoice:
https://dimagi.uservoice.com/forums/194737-commcare-mobile

Alternatively you could create something similar in function by combining a
dropdown for month and an integer question for year, and then, if
necessary, using a hidden value to structure it into a date.

Hope this helps,

Jeremy

Thanks Jeremy,
That does help. I was thinking something like the month-year appearance
attribute that stock ODK has. Will use uservoice.

Kind regards,

Hi Jeremy,

I’m trying to do something similar but I’m a little stuck. I created two
drop down menus, one for month and one for year. How do I convert this into
a date that I can reference on later forms?

Thanks,
Erin

Hi Erin,

You should be able to do this using the date() function here

Cheers,
