How can I create a field for my customer to enter a time for the service. I dont see any time option.

Hi @pandazoom We don’t have a specific time field, but you could use a short text field for this.
@Liz That’s absolutely mad!
New user here. Just setting up my first Typeform. Time is an important data field for most businesses..
Our customers need to be able to invite us to events with a date and time.
A text field opens the door to all kinds of issues. Is it AM or PM? What timezone? How to integrate that with an app that used a timefield?
Now, a human will have to review every “time” entry for the to ensure that it makes sense, and then to add the data as a timefield in our other application. Defeats the entire idea of automating the process.
Thanks for the feedback, @Tim Bolivar , I’ll pass it along to the product team. 😀
Agreed with Thoma! It would be very useful to have a time format pre-set for questions
Totally agree, kinda surprised that a time field isn’t an option. What could be more important than time entry for scheduling/forms other than date? Cmon guys get with it
Our product team has seen the request for this, @areenmachine @ifnotusthenwho , and as always, stay tuned here in case this is a feature they release.
Another vote for a time field by a new user. Very surprised by this.
I’m in the same boat. We’re using Typeform to capture customer feedback and we need them to be able to tell us what time they were in our store so that we can accurately associate comments with the person who helped them.
The short text field just leaves way too many variables unknown for many of the reasons Tim mentioned up above. My solution for the time being is to use a Multiple Choice question with several options for periods of time. (9am-noon, noon-4pm, 4pm-8pm) It’s a very imperfect solution though, especially from noon-4pm when we have a bunch of overlapping shifts.
Hoping something better can be added soon.
It’s such a deal breaker for me. 😔I need my customers to specify start and end time of certain activities.But I cannot do it here. Only Google Forms or Jotform.The absence of this field is the only thing holding me from buying a subscription now.
Same here, was surprised to find out that a DateTime field does not exist yet.Could be an option in the “date format” dropdown e.g. “DDMMYY hh”/“DDMMYY hhmm”.
Hi @georgs yeah, that’s a great idea. I’ll share that with the product team!
I agree, this seems like a very important field to add and an easy one to add for the product team as well. Even Google Forms has this field on its free form offering.
Hi, One Year and no update on this, is there a workaround?
Hi @abquanta I’m afraid we don’t have this feature nor a workaround, but if that changes, we’ll post any updates here in the community.
This seems to be so simple, considering that wordpress has this for years.
We are desparately looking for a way to ask for timeslots on typeforms, but I does not seem to be developed.
It’s been over a year. I have been waiting for this before purchasing. It’s useless without it.
Like many others, who want to use typeform for bookings… a TIME is REQUIRED. A simple text field is not going to work well with an API.
How do you NOT have someone solving this on an urgent basis?
I understand that dealing with dates and times in coding is complex, but to ignore it all together is simply lazy.
Don't be shy and ask the community.
