Flow Button -> No date picker control available on Android / iOS

Create a flow that starts from the Flow Button (shows as Manually trigger a flow)

Click "+ Add input"

Select "Date"

Save flow

 

-> Run this newly created flow on your Android or iOS device and tap on the Trigger Date field

-> You will notice that no Date Picker / Calendar appears. Instead, the software keyboard displays on-screen and expects you to enter a date in YYYY-MM-DD format.

-> Run this newly created flow on your desktop machine and click in the Trigger Date field

-> You will notice a Date Picker / Calendar appears for easy use

Re: Flow Button -> No date picker control available on Android / iOS

Hello vitg_df,

 

Thank you for your message.

I tried to reproduce the situation reported and it's behaving exactly like you reported.

 

I understand that the user experience is not consistent on both mobile and desktop versions but aside from that aspect, it's working fine if you input the date as suggested in the mobile version.

 

I would like to suggest you to present this as an idea in our Flow Ideas forum:

Re: Flow Button -> No date picker control available on Android / iOS

Hi

 

this is not really an idea, it is a bug that was fixed already in the past but has returned... (see links below)

 

A consistent UX/UI for users is an important feature. Manually entering a reversed date format is not the expected behaviour (for a product designed to share buttons with non-developers in a business setting). 

 

Thank you for your help
