Hi all! I have a form with date fields that I'd like the user to be able to edit manually. The reason for this is that if the date the field is related to in unknown, the user needs to enter a dummy date like 12/31/1900. The data flow doesn't allow for this as a default to be changed as needed because the analysts on the back end need to know the user actually entered a value and didn't just skip the field.

However, I can't seem to get this to work. Ideally it would work with a month-year appearance, but this isn't critical. Spinning the years back to 1900 seems a bit unreasonable. Is there any way to get this, or something that accomplishes the same thing, implemented? Thanks.

Just make a select_one with one choice.

You could have a button like Use dummy date?  And then have that calc in the 1900 value.  Would be faster.

Just an idea.

How do you add a button to Survey123? Haven't seen that mentioned anywhere.
