    Can Jotform automatically insert a date into the "First Debit Date" field that is every second Thursday, commencing from 2 Nov 2017.

    For example the next fortnight after 2 Nov 2017 is 16 Nov 2017 so I need the date to autofill as 16 Nov 2017.

    I didn't understand your inquiry fully, do you want to allow your users to select only Thursdays in Date field?

    Since you can do that with limits option of the date field:

    Or did you have something else in mind?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Yes, I want it to only show every second Thursday in the calendar.

    Thank you for the clarification. As I understand you want to display only Thursdays of every 2nd week of the month.

    You can use our limit functionality of the date-picker and then exclude all days except Thursdays. This will display only Thursdays in a month. Going forward you can then manually disable the other Thursdays of the month and only remain with the second Thursday of the month.

    Below is a demo form I have created for you to test, clone and use it.

    You can then use the day limitation by excluding date 1-5 and dates 14-31. This is because most 2nd weeks fall in between dates 6 and 13 of every month.

    Below is a guide on how you can setup limitations by disabling Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Below is a illustration of what I did on the above form.
