    I am using the Date Reservation Widget and the calendar keeps blocking days.  I only have weekends blocked in settings. Please advise.

    Your Date Reservation Widget was setup as follows:

    This means:

    1. It won't allow PAST DATES

    2. It will allow WEEKENDS

    3. It won't allow TODAY

    If your aim is to block weekends alone, please change your settings to reflect the same. Your setup should be:

    ALLOW PAST DATES = Yes

    ALLOW WEEKENDS = No

    ALLOW TODAY = Yes

    In case we misunderstood your question, just get back to us with a bit more info and a clearer description of what you're trying to do so we can better assist you.

    Hello,

    Can you look at my settings again please? They are set to:

    ALLOW PAST DATES = Yes

    ALLOW WEEKENDS = No

    ALLOW TODAY = Yes

    Dates are still blocked and grayed out with these settings.

    Hi again Daniel - Here's how I see the widget for the month of December when I viewed your form:

    The WEEKENDS are all disabled, just like how you want it to. And the rest of the WEEKDAYS are available.

    The 15th, 22nd and 26th are disabled because someone already picked those slots.

    If you're seeing the widget differently, kindly share a screenshot of it. Please refer to the quick guide below to ensure that your screenshot will reach our Support Forum. It will never post if you attach it via email.

    Oh ok. I wasn't aware of the fact that dates would become unavailable for selection once they're chosen and submitted. I'm using the widget for a time-off request form for employees. We allow multiple people to request the same day.

    In that case you should try another widget.

    I have a demo that shows them all on the one page. So you can try them all quickly and then decide which one you like best.
