How to Use the Time Field in Nelio Forms

The time field in a form is the designated field for users to enter an exact time in your form as it can be the estimated time of an appointment, the time duration of an event or any other time you want them to fill in.

In this entry, we’ll show you all the options available for the time field with Nelio Forms.

Adding a Time Field to Your Form

When creating a new form or editing an existing one, adding an additional time field is as easy as adding a new Date/Time field block in the block editor. You can use the Block Inserter + icon, or a shortcut slash command or use the More options on any of the block’s toolbar to insert a block.

Time Field Settings

In the sidebar, you can set the the following date field properties:

  • The minimum date that can be selected by the user,
  • The maximum date that can be selected by the user,
  • Set the step size for the ascending and descending time selector. By default, the value is 60 seconds. For example, if you had this setting set to 300, each increase would add 5 minutes to the displayed time.
  • Set whether the field must be filled in the form to be submitted,
  • Set whether the field label should be shown or hidden.
