    Multiple choice list based on date

    Asked by sbnm on February 17, 2017 at 07:04 PM

    I am trying to create a classified ad submission form and will be listing all the issues that we are running for the rest of the year. Is it possible to assign a date value (deadline) for each option and only show the option if the deadline has not passed? Or is there another way to accomplish this?

    Yes, it is possible and no, because this still depends on how would you like the said option(s) to be presented.

    If the option is presented in a checkbox, drop-down or radio button field, then it would not be possible, since there is no way we can apply conditions to "options" in those fields.

    However, if option(s) are represented by fields then, you can use the Date Field, set it to "current", and create condition(s) that states,

    "If the date (field) is equal to a certain or specific date then show/hide this/these (option) field(s)"

    I hope this helps. If, in any case, I have misunderstood your concern, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you.
