Setting a date range via the Dates Difference Widget

    I have a problem!
    On the form created, I have an arrival date and a departure date. If the visitor completes the arrival date and forgets the departure date, the form still goes to the next step.
    How to force the visitor to fill both dates?

    Looking forward to reading you ...
    Best Regards

    You can set the form elements you want as "required" in JotForm. If you set both date fields as required, the visitor can not progress further.

    In order to set a form element as required, you can first select the element, click on "Properties" icon and set required switch "on" from the properties panel that appears on the right.

    Thank you. I knew it.
    What I am trying to explain to you when the visitor has chosen his arrival date, he may be wrong by indicating a date prior to arrival.
    I searched and I did not find a way to ban it

    Hello again!

    I would suggest trying our "Dates Difference" widget, which does exactly what you request.


    You can set the question from "Question Properties" panel.


    You can change question labels from "Widget Settings" panel.


    You can also set this field as required.
