    Is there any way to set-up a simple date range in one field? For example:

    Start Date: MMDDYYYY End Date: MMDDYYYY

    Hello, there's no way to achieve that with the DateTime field. You really need to have 2 of these to emulate a Date Range.

    The good news is, there's a widget that might meet your requirements. The Dates Difference widget will do just that. Here's a quick demo form showing you how it works https://form.jotform.com/52070055789964
