I have a form called "Report work dates"

In this form i use the question type "dates" so the user can pick a date.

 

Then i use Microsoft Flow to extract the data from the Form and us that data to input into a list in Sharepoint.

But in sharepoint i must select a TEXT column in the list for the date to be imported to the list with Flow.

I can not make the date from Forms go into a Date column in sharepoint.

 

This means i can not populate a sharepoint calendar with a Form answer.

 

This sucks!

@Oskar Kuus Just wondering if you made any progress with this? I've got the same issue extracting the date from MS Forms and inputting this as a list item.
