In this blog, we'll explore how you can use Clappia's Date Selector Block to add dates customised for your application effortlessly. We'll demonstrate its functionality with an example of an interview scheduling app that you can easily create using Clappia.

Creating an Interview Scheduling App with Clappia

Imagine you are an HR manager responsible for scheduling interviews for job applicants. To simplify the process, you decide to create a custom app using Clappia. The app will capture interviewee details, including the mode of interview (telephonic, online, or face-to-face), and determine if they have qualified for the next round.

Step 1: Designing the App

First, log in to Clappia and click on new app in the dashboard. Navigate to the 'Design App' section to create your app structure. Here, you can define the fields you need. In this case, you'll add fields for interviewee details, mode of interview, and the date of the interview.

Step 2: Adding the Date Selector Block

To add the date functionality to your app, click on "ADD field" and select the "Date Selector" block. You can customize the block with a label name (e.g., "Date of Interview") and add a description to guide users on what to input.

Step 3: Configuring the Date Selector Block

Next, configure the Date Selector Block using the "Basic" and "Advanced" options. You can choose to enable the "Default to current date" option if you want the system to automatically capture the current date of submission. If you prefer users to select different dates, enable the "Show current date" option.

To ensure users don't miss any crucial fields, you can make the date field "required" before submission. This way, the app won't accept incomplete submissions.

Step 4: Implementing Logic

To make the app even more user-friendly, you can implement logic using Clappia's powerful features for enhanced customization. For example, you can set the app to display the date field titled as 'Date of Online Interview' only when the "Mode of Interview" is selected as "Online." Similarly, you can display the date field titled as 'Date of Interview' for "Telephonic" and "Face to Face" interviews.

Step 5: Adding the Date for the Next Round

To capture the date for the next round, you can use the Date Selector Block again. In this case, you can set the app to show the "Second Round" date field only when the candidate has qualified for the next round. Additionally, you can set the date for the second round to be, say, one week after the date of the first interview.

Step 6: Testing and Submission

Once your app is ready, test it to ensure everything functions as intended. You can then share the app with your team or colleagues to start scheduling interviews efficiently.
