Add DateValue on Calendar for the relevant day

I'm creating a time sheet for employees within an organisation and I want to know is it possible that whenever a employee wants to add a new date or edit a day for a specific day that it would only display the dates from that day.

For example an today is Wednesday and an employee forgot to fill out their time sheet for Monday, so once they go in to edit their Monday page ad clock in the time and date, the calendar should only show them the date for that Monday they forgot to fill in.

Hi @SandraAkujobi ,


Based on screenshots in other posts of yours, I assume that you want to set default dates of Date Pickers in each form to a specific weekday date.


I tested on my own side and find a way to achieve the goal:


You could set each Date Picker’s DefaultDate property in Monday's form to the formula like in the screenshot:




The Weekday function returns a number represents the weekday of a specific date, today is Thursday so it returns 5(Sunday is 1 by default) and the date of this Monday(in Weekday function returns 2) is today minus 3 (5-2).


Date Pickers in other forms should set the corresponding value of the Weekday() to replace the hard coded number in the formula. But as you said in the other post, Saturday and Sunday are of one form, this function could not be applied on that form.


Please reference to the doc: functions of time .


Hope this helps.

I think I understand what you mean, but my only concern is where to put the formula as on the defaultdate function I have already added in a formula in regards to the button created to clock in and out, also for both clock in and out function I have two different formulas.

Also I created a new whole new app so I have one form and all the days are listed on it, so Saturday and Sunday have separate pages now.


Below is an image for of the formula used in the clock in defaultdate function and clock out.

Hi @SandraAkujobi ,


Could you please share the details about the two variables?

As you have 7 buttons, I assume that you set a variable with different values by clicking each button? If so, you could use the formula in the variable, like on Monday Button:


Set(VarCurrenDate, DateAdd(Today(),-(Weekday(Today())-2)))


 Please have a try and if have further information please let me know.

I just tried it with the formula posted and it didn't work, I even removed the formula I had in their beforehand just to make sure and it didn't work.

That was the error message I got from the formula.That was the error message I got from the formula.


 Yes I set each days with variables with different values as well as using similar methods as I did for the clock in/out Monday formulas where clock in uses 

If(Form1.Mode = FormMode.New,VARCurrentDateTime, Parent.Default)


And clock out uses 




Hi @SandraAkujobi ,


Apply the formula on the OnSelect of each Button of the day. The DatePicker's DefaultDate is no need to change still set to


If(Form1.Mode = FormMode.New,VARCurrentDateTime, Parent.Default)


But I don't know what the variable VARCurrentDateTime2 is?

I've tried it again and it does not work. I tried it on both days so for Monday clock in start time, the date and time does not appear at all on the screen whereas on the clock out button, the date for the Monday of this current is shown but the time does not appear and once saved whats being displayed on the details page is the Monday end date date but no time and nothing on the Monday start date and time. 


On the Tuesday page I did the exact same thing as the Monday page, formulas are out in the same place the only thing that changed was the (Today())-2))) to a 3. Tuesday clock in date is showing the current date today which is 10th whereas the time also does not change, but for the clock out date shows the correct date for Tuesday which is the 8th and also the time does not populate either.

Below are images to show you how it looks like.
