Adding A Date Question Type To Your Surveys 

A date question type in a survey is a question that asks the respondent to provide a date as their answer. This can include a specific date, a range of dates, or a date format such as month and year. It is usually used to gather information about occurrences or events that have a specific date associated with them, such as birthdates, anniversaries, or purchase dates.

It’s important to note that in some cases, the date question type can be optional and may not be necessary for the survey’s purpose. Your research question and the data you want to collect will determine what you need to do.

  • To add a Date question type to your survey on SurveyPoint, open the workspace and click “Create a new survey +”. You can also use our pre-made templates if you don’t want to start a survey from scratch.
  • You can also open an existing survey that you have created on your workspace to add this question type.

  • Open your survey to get started.
  • Click on the “+” button on the top right corner of the sidebar. 

  • Once you click on it, you’ll be able to see several question types offered by SurveyPoint.

Navigating Settings
