Regarding Date of Birth

Hello, All Technical Team members.

I am facing a big problem while I am trying to put the date of Birth of interviewees.
For example, if I need to write 27 December 1978 it takes edges to put that on the Form.

Could you please help me anyone?


Welcome to the community @o_baied1977! Maybe you could overcome this issue if you design your survey form as outlined in the image below:

Data entry screen as seen in Enketo:

Here, select the Year/Month as shown in the image above (to customize the date to your preferred year).

Once again select the year to customize the year to your preferred year.
