    The dates in my form end in 2016, I need to extend the year past 2016... how do I do that?

    Asked by chachas on December 09, 2016 at 04:09 AM

    The form I'm using is a job application.  One of the questions ask's "When can you start"... My jotform doesn't allow entries past 12/31/2016.... How can I add 2017 and future years to my forms?

    I have checked your form 23475234553151, and I see that the particular field you are referencing is a Birth Day Picker widget.

    As such, this widget will always only allow selecting past dates, and 2017 is not available for selection inside this widget at this time because it would be allowing "birthdays" from future.

    If you intended to have a field for collecting random dates rather than birthdays, please use a regular DateTime field instead:

    Considering that your existing fields have already collected data, you should not remove your existing fields from the form as it would also erase any data that these fields have collected. Instead, simply mark your old form fields as hidden, and use a new DateTime field in their place if you wish to collect future dates:
