    It is possible to create a condition for the "Date Picker" field. Please check this demo form: https://form.jotform.com/70445057636963. You can clone it if you like.

    Here's a guide on how I created that demo form:

    1. I inserted a "Date Picker" tool and a "Text" element.

    2. I created a Show/Hide Field Condition wherein if the "Date Picker" field is equal to "Today", then the "Text" element will appear.


    3. You need to type the word "today" in the Value field of the IF condition.

    Here's the result:
