      The US Census is missing the date (as in 01 Apr 1940). Using the assistant, it only displays Apr 1940. Was this intentional? The other countries have the date.

      PS Just tried the Census with assistant and it saved, using the fix provided.

      Yes, intentional. That census was not carried out on a single date but throughout the month. Here’s what Ancestry say about it:

      Because the official cutoff for the census was 12:01 a.m. on April 1, babies born later that day should not have been included. Residents of “hotels, tourist or trailer camps, missions, and cheap one-night lodging houses (flophouses)” were enumerated based on where they spent the night on 8 April 1940. Enumerators worked throughout the month and into May finishing the count.

      But if you want to add a specific day you can edit the field as normal. You may have a specific date on the page you are transcribing.
