    Default Date Format?

    Hey all,

    I'm trying to set a default due date for a specific type of activity. Whenever I try to put a default date into the control, the screen has an error and doesn't load. 

    I'd like to use Dec 31, 11:59PM as the default date. What format should I do this in to not cause an error?

    Hi there GroGreen,

    The Control should expect a format similar to the following (Either should work, and the control will figure out the conversion if the Display Format is different from what is entered)

    May-29-2017 10:27 AM - Short Date and Time

    Mon, May 29, 2017 10:28 AM - Long Date and Time

    However - it appears there is a problem with the control accepting Manually set Date/Times at the moment. I've brought this one up with the team, and we will look into a fix for this one.

    In the Meantime, It seems that Actions which update this control still work correctly - so a potential workaround would be to have an Update Controls on Screen action set On Screen Focus Which Updates your Date/Time Picker with a date following one of the above formats.

    Thanks GroGreen!
