I have created several user input fields, some text fields for remarks and some date fields. In the cart (frontend) and in the order details (backend) the remarks are visible, but the dates the user chose are not.
I can see they're saved when I examine the virtuemart_orders table in the database, but they don't show up for the shop administrator.
What can I do?
(versions: J3.5.1 / VM3.0.16)

I'm not aware of the possibility to enable or disable showing certain types of Custom (user input) fields in the Order details view (in the backend).
(But i'd like to know where it is...)

I mean in the cart view.
You can disable or enable fields by views, this can change how it's displayed in order view.
Note : if you have same setting as other fields(remarks) forgot what i wrote and this can be then a potential bug.

Yes I do have the same settings as (for instance) a Customer input field.

Hi, perhaps, it's solved in new release?
Can you update Joomla + Virtuemart on a test server ?
Note : 3.0.14 do not work properly with Joomla 3.6.0, if you don't applied the VM patch for emails

Hmm I'm using VM 3.0.16, but the latest version in the VM download site is 3.0.14 ?! So updating will be difficult I think...
And what is this VM patch for emails you're talking about? I did update Joomla in the mean time, by the way.

I updated to Joomla 3.6.2 and VM 3.0.17.4 and created a new date custom field, added it to an article, ordered it, but still no date shows up in Cart view (frontend) or Orders view (backend).
The date does appear in the database though...

I have this problem too.
I use Joomla! 3.6.0    and VirtueMart 3.0.18.

I have created Custom Field Type: Date with settings  Cart Attribute and Cart Input set to Yes.  In this case a calendar is shown in frontend and when the client chooses a date (es.Arrival Date) it's not shown neather in the cart nor in the order information.

If I change the settings to Cart Attribute - Yes and Cart Input - No than in the frontend the calendar is gone and automatically is shown today's date. In this case this date (today's date) is shown in the cart and order details.

How I can set this custom filed to work that the client chooses by himself the arrival date and this date is shown in the cart and order details???
