    Suggested: Date/Time picker with extended validation

    Asked by amproduction on October 03, 2012 at 04:19 AM

    Hi,

    I'd really like a date and/or date/time picker object, where the validation could include the following limitations:

    Only able to select a date or date/time that is X days/hours in the future
    -or within a time range
    -or within a date range
    -or only within weekdays
    -or X work days in the future etc.

    I need people to select a date they would like something to happen, that lies a number  work days in the future, so that we have time to facilitate the request. Without this validation, people pick a close date, or the same date, and feel that they can go ballistic about it, since we accepted int on the form.

    Could you look into this?

     

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Hello Martin.  I have forwarded this feature request to the development team.  Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this feature can be implemented anytime soon as our development team is pretty busy.  But as soon as we have this implemented, we'll inform you right away.

    However, if you need this feature immediately, you can get your form's source code, place your form's source in an HTML page, and modify its code to customize the calendar functionality.

    Thank you for the reply. :-)

    The reason I'm asking you - and using JotForm - is that I'm not worth much in an HTML editor... ;-)

    If it gets accepted or rejected, will you update this thread?

     

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Hi Martin.

    The thread has been flagged for our developers attention. 

    As liyam has said, it may well get accepted, as we can see that it looks like useful fuctionality; the difficulty will be assesing just how much demand there is for the feature and from there, a priorty level will be assigned to the feature request.

    Also looking forward to this feature. We need our clients to be able to select pick-up time window and drop-off time windows with increments of 15 minutes or so.

    Ok, this thread is over 2 years old.  We need a 15-minute increment so we can post to our webcalendar which uses only 15 min. increments.

    Have the developers done any more on this?  It's embarrassing to explain to clients we have to do a 'workaround' cause we're using a cheap form provider....

    Thanks for checking this out.

    @iLorna

    You are more then welcome to open up a new thread requesting a feature to be implemented though we appreciate you checking up on it here first. As far as I know there is no further news about this but as soon as something more is known about it. If we find any further information about it then we'll let you know.

    Other then that you might want to consider looking through our Widgets for now: http://widgets.jotform.com/search/time and http://widgets.jotform.com/search/date
