    The date control is not performing ANY validation.

    Asked by rayj on October 10, 2012 at 05:27 PM

    I think JotForm has a great interface and is easy to use!  I prefer it over WoFoo.

    Unfortunately, validation is VERY important to me.  The date controls are not providing validation - a user can even enter non-numeric data.

    Please address this as soon as possible.  We want to become JotForm customers.


    Thank you,

    Hi Raymond,

    I have submitted a bug report for this issue. 

    In meantime, are you able to use the BirthDate picker? This uses dropdown menus so you dont have to rely on the dates being validated.

    Thanks for the suggestion.  I did switch back to the BirthDate picker and it works fine, but I did want my users to have the calendar to pick from.

    Your support department is excellent - Thanks for the quick reponse!

    Hi rayj,

    We've finally added date and time validation as you'd requested. Sorry for the delay.
