    I want to have a form with some entries (pretty much like an appointment) ie. lets say  there is a item named bread and I can have someone enter a date that it expires. Is there a way to have a reminder email sent notifying that its going to expire like in 7 days?

    I would have like 12 items that people can enter a expiration date on and would like to have some sort of notification sent when its within 7 days of expiring

    Please check this guide -How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form . You can use the 'expire date' for the form feature to work on your requirement.

    Base on your idea, I do not see a direct way to trigger the 'expiry' if you do not open/use the form. It will always have to be triggered when the form is loaded or opened.

    The possible way I know of is by setting a backend cron job or scheduled tasks (i.e Windows Tasks, Calendar Reminder, etc.) that will monitor a time/date data from your form's time/date field. But this would mean setting an application which is bejond JotForm's functions.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry or require further assistance.

    Thanks.
