    How do I connect an ical file with the date picker on my Jotform so people cannot select dates that are unavailable?

    We are sorry that such feature is not available to integrate iCal file with the date field. Let me forward the thread to our backend team as a feature request for evaluation. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any ETA at this moment. However, if there is any news you'll be updated here on this thread. 

    I am not sure if that helps, you may consider taking a look at our booking app that can block the already selected date in the submissions.

    You may also take a look at our similar widgets below that might work:

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your reply. I looked at the widgets that you suggested, and I don’t think they will meet my needs. I need to integrate either Google Calendar or an iCal file to the date picker on my form to block out full days (not time slots) that have been reserved. The time slot option is not what I need, but thank you anyway.

    I do hope the Jotform development team will add this functionality in the future.

    The dates can be manually blocked with the Date Picker fields:

    Unfortunately, this is not currently possible to connect it to an iCal file or a Google Calendar.

    However, we will let you know if we have any updates on this.
