Hi everyone,

I need your help with Tokens Date Format.

In my survey I need to insert a date in each token in "Valid Until" each week, and every week I have to insert it one by one... I tried a lot of formats in the import file, but it always comes out empty.

Thanks for the help.

Think it's a SQL date format:

2914-02-05 23:59:59

The easiest way to find out how the tokens date format works is creating a token from the GUI, export it and you should have an example how it needs to look like.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

This is a really strange format. And I am not sure if it is not actually DD.MM.YY, which would fit with the German date format.

What date format have you chosen in the section of "Edit survey text elements"?
