How do I add a date picker

I am trying to add an option in a table for someone to choose a date from viewing a calendar.  How do I do that please?

Hi Elizabeth,

the easiest way is just write down two slashes // (in the edit mode) - the datepicker then appears.

Eventually you can use the top menu: Insert more content (plus sign) -> Date.

Thank you Hana.  I do understand how to get a static date. Let me try to describe it a different way.  I am creating a table to use as a fillable form.  Column 1 lists the questions. In column 2, I want to insert pre-formatted fields so someone can answer the questions from column 1.  For example, I want the user to reply with a short text field.  Or, I want the user to pick a date by pulling down a calendar to choose a date.  Or, I want to have the user choose an option from a pull-down menu.  How do I "format" column 2 rows so that I can get a specific response from the user?  

Also I read your response as two slashes //, is a "code" that will get a date picker. Do you have a guide that shows all the "codes" in the edit mode?

Hopefully this makes sense.  

Thank you again!

Hi Elizabeth,

thank you for the clarification.

It sounds to me, that you need to create custom forms for your users. I would recommend you to use some add-on like:

Multivote macro in Confluence is very simple and has only limited functionality.

Nice page about shortcuts etc. is this one:

Have you tried using ConfiForms?

Hello @Elizabeth Redding 

It looks like our Handy Macros for Confluence can help you. It has many macros in a bundle, including Handy Date and Handy Status to create date pickers and dropdowns that can be switched in the page view mode.
