Date Input

When prompting with a date input, the user can enter an absolute (2020-12-31 08:00) or relative (tomorrow 8am) date. A calendar popup can also be used to select a specific date.

If a relative date is given, it is automatically converted into an absolute date before sending. This ensures that the bot is always receiving the response to a date prompt in a consistent format.

In a conversational bot behavior, add the Prompt With » Date Input action.

Placeholder

The instructive text shown in the date prompt before any text is entered.

Default

The default text in the date prompt.

Save to a placeholder

Name a placeholder where a copy of the user’s response will be saved. You can then later refer to this answer when making decisions or giving responses.
