    Date Picker > Limits: Set limits based on business days

    Asked by PDQ_Printing on March 02, 2017 at 02:41 PM

    I need the date picker only to allow dates that are 3 business days in the future. As it is now, if someone submits an order on a Friday, the DatePicker allows them to choose Monday, when it should be Wednesday. I need the DatePicker to skip over the weekend when counting 3 days. Is this possible?

    I am afraid that we do not currently have an option to skip the weekend in date limit calculations. I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and forwarded it to our developers. We do not have a EAT for when it can be implemented, but we will let you know if we have any updates.

    We need something similar, although a little bit more detailed.

    If we can limit for example "today + 1business_day".

    For example, if the current day is Thursday, the people who fill out the form won't be able to select Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday (but they will be able to select every day of the following weeks, including Satudays and Sundays).

    If the current day is Friday, they won't be able to select Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday, but they will be able to select any date after that (including Saturdays and Sundays).

    If the current day is Saturday or Sunday, they won't be able to select Saturday, Sunday or Monday, but they will be able to select any date after that (including Saturdays and Sundays).

    If the current day is Monday, they won't be able to select Monday or Tuesday, but they will be able to select any date after that (including Saturdays and Sundays).
