This is my first post to the R community, and I suspect my question may be immediately obvious to anyone who views it (and I'm also worried this may be an R question, and not a Shiny question per say). Nonetheless, I cannot figure it out. I'm working on a Shiny form using the excellent template provided by Dean Attali (https://deanattali.com/2015/06/14/mimicking-google-form-shiny/). Using Dean's example (code here: https://github.com/daattali/shiny-server/blob/master/mimic-google-form/app.R), let's just add a single field, a date input:
dateInput("date", label = "Date:", format = "mm/dd/yyyy")
Now, I update fieldsAll (line 4) so the date will be displayed in the table that is rendered:
fieldsAll <- c("name", "date", "favourite_pkg", "used_shiny", "r_num_years", "os_type")
However, the date appears in a format I do not recognize. For example, the date 01/07/2019 displays in the table as 17903. I would like this to display the same as it is entered, how can this be accomplished? My first thought was that on the server side, the output$responseTable should be modified (added line 228), e.g.:
data$date <- as.POSIXct(data$date, ...)
But I'm not sure what should be set for origin here since I do not recognize the format. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
