Welcome prospective Google Summer of Code participants! Check out our DIAL Sub-Org page and our main thread. Please discuss your ideas for the New Date Prompts for ODK-X Survey project here or in the project slack channel.
This project is focused on adding new prompt types to capture dates and times. Survey currently supports only two prompts of this type: date and datetime. The first collects just the date using a series of dropdown menus, and the second collects both the date and the time in the same way. We would like to give our form designers more options for the types of dates they can collect. Examples of new date types:
- Add a year only input prompt type
- Add a month and year only input prompt type
- Add a calendar prompt type that shows the month for a user to choose from
- Add calendar prompt types for non-Gregorian calendars (e.g., Ethiopian calendar, Islamic calendar)
