I need a widget that will allow users to select dates over the summer but not block previously selected dates.

    Hi,

    I have used the Date Reservation Widget to try a set up user date selection over June, July, August. The problem I have is it blocks previously selected dates (my bad).  How can I allow form submitters to select dates and not have them greyed/block by previous form submitters.

    The link show you our form - the summer issue is at the end of the form.

    Unfortunately, Date reservation widget doesn't allow to select the previous date again by another user. If you want to enable the users to select the same date for multiple times, you may consider using the date field from the form elements. However, multiple dates selection is not possible with the default date field. 

    If you want the user to select multiple dates for multiple submissions, you may consider using configurable list widget with only date field so that the user can add multiple dates to the submission. Please refer to the following guide to set up the configurable list widget.

    Also, let us know if it is your requirement to select multiple dates for multiple submissions so that we can forward the thread to our backend team to see if it can be implemented.

    Thanks!

    Hello, 
    I've read several threads on this.. It seems that I'm not the only one that really need a multiple date picker. Do you have a real simple solution since ? 
    I have to know it really fast, I'm losing time and need to know if I have to go to another app-form..

    Thanks for your response
