Date and input widget

Date – only valid dates are accepted

Example:

IDTypeTextGoto
2.1Date-CheckinDateAnd when would you like to checkin? (Example format: MM/DD/YY)

Best Practice:
Its best to use DateWidget instead of date to avoid user side errors for formatting issues.

DateWidget – only valid dates are accepted

Example:

IDTypeTextGoto
2.1DateWidget-CheckinDate-yyyy/mm/ddAnd when would you like to checkin? (Save Date in Format: YYYY/MM/DD)

The date widget actually loads a complete calendar component within the chat, supported by browser’s inbuilt validations.

Note: You can also add a date format (optional) to save the date in the desired format. This can be done by adding a third parameter after the variable in which the date is being saved (as shown in the example above).
