The DateTime tag adds date and time selection to the labeling interface. Use this tag to add a date, timestamp, month, or year to an annotation.

Use with the following data types: audio, image, HTML, paragraph, text, time series, video


Param Type Default Description
name string Name of the element
toName string Name of the element that you want to label
only string Comma-separated list of parts to display (date, time, month, year) date and month/year can’t be used together. The date option takes precedence
format string Input/output strftime format for datetime (internally it’s always ISO); when both date and time are displayed, by default shows ISO with a “T” separator; when only date is displayed, by default shows ISO date; when only time is displayed, by default shows a 24 hour time with leading zero
[min] string Set a minimum datetime value for only=date, minimum year for only=year
[max] string Set a maximum datetime value for only=date, maximum year for only=year
[required] boolean false Whether datetime is required or not
[requiredMessage] string Message to show if validation fails
[perRegion] boolean Use this option to label regions instead of the whole object
