The Date question allows you to pick a date from a given calendar. 

When to use a Date Question?

Date questions are ideal to use in your survey when you want to know a specific date from your respondents. For example: your employee’s joining date in the company, date when a customer would like a call back, date of visit in the past for which the respondent is sharing information or date of a certain business activity for which you are taking the feedback.
