I have a SharePoint list where employees create a new item and fills out a form and submits it.  I'm having problem with a date column though.  Users have the correct access to this list and are using the date picker yet still receiving this error message.

 

Is there a different kind of access that I need to check?

Nobody has seen this before?

We have other users that are able to do it so I'm wondering if it's an access issue
I'm getting the same error but only for one user even though they appear to have the right permissions. Did you manage to resolve the error?

I did not.  I just deleted the date column and started using a single line text column instead  :|

 

If you figure it out, please reply back here

Someone, please find a solution to this! A colleague asked me yesterday to look at it, as she was having trouble using the date picker when adding a new item in a SP list. I did not have the same problem, and tried various solutions with no luck. Regional settings in SP, on the computer, in Office, Sharepoint Admin settings ++. Today another colleague contacted me and experienced the same. However, now I also had this issue. Seriously..?!

UPDATE!
Everything works fine when inputting new list element with the sharepoint mobile phone app. I then tried Edge browser (Chrome is my default), but same problem here with incorrect date format. Then, for the hell of it, I tried explorer. It had correct date format there! I then checked my Chrome regional setting and language, and everything seems fine...?! However, when I changed from Norwegian to Danish and relaunched Chrome, the date field in SP worked! Going back to Norwegian messed it up again. There must have been some error in the Chrome update with language packs and formats...??

One of my colleagues has the same problem with Edge. I wasn't able to replicate the issue on Chrome.
