    11/19/2018 Update:

    Hi everyone. Here's an update on this issue. 

    We don't support this yet, but you can add any input type/attributes with an "embed" block. For example: 

    `<input type="color" name="color" value="#FF0000" />`

    Email, Number, and Phone Number
    Shipped. You can mark these as Required in the UI. 

    Unsupported as Safari is still missing support for the type:"date". We can prioritize this once support has been added for Safari. 

    Max, min, maxlength, step, pattern:
    You can define these via custom attributes

    Also input type url, search. Not sure Webflow is aware of how the keyboard changes in mobile, if these types are properly coded.

    Safari now supports type:date as of April 2021

    As mentioned below, why not just add the type=date and display a warning that this isn't supported in Safari?

    Safari won't be supporting date picker anytime in the near future. So there is no point in waiting for Safari to support it. Just add a warning when using it.

    Yes, Even if it's not stylable, this feature is much needed in forms.

    "Number" type has just been launched, and we already have email and phone.

    I really need to be able to setup de value of a field. I don't want to have to use js to set the value of a field

    I really need to specify my input to be of type "search". Without it, there is no key "search" (or "go") on the virtual keyboard. This oversight makes it harder to get prototype acceptance from stakeholders.

    It's rather shocking that this isn't a feature yet. It goes without saying really. Please do something about this.
