    Date condition I set doesn't seem to do anything

    Asked by Davidgilbertvo on April 21, 2017 at 02:59 PM

    I also found an issue where the Date condition I set doesn't seem to do anything - trying to make sure that if a user enters a date in one field that is earlier than the date in another it forces them to go back and reenter a new date in the first field.

    You have set condition to require "Project Due Date" field, if date that is entered inside of that field is before date that is selected in "Quote Due Date" field. That conditions is working correctly, but it will not force your users to change the selected dates.

    I would suggest you to add custom text message that will notify your user to change the dates. You can also disable or hide submit button, to prevent your users to submit the form if wrong dates are entered. You can set your condition like this.

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71106007451948 

    Feel free to test ti and clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
