    Hi there,

     

    Just wondering if the Check in Check out widget has the ability to disable date ranges?

     

    Currently we can only take reservations up to 9 months in advance in our company and certain peak date ranges are lock until we release the dates.

    With the regular Date Picker, it's very frustrating selecting check in and check out dates for our guests as the 'check out' date field goes back to the current date.

    For example, we will receive a booking form that shows:

    Check in: 01/09/2019

    Check out: 20/06/2019

    It will show September - June as guests assume the second date picker will take off straight from the first date.

     

    Is there a widget that can do what we are looking for?

    Unfortunately, check in check out widget doesn't have this feature.

    With Jotform's date picker, you can disable 9 months from today's date. Assuming that 9 months is equal to 270 days, you can add this to the date range today>today+270.

    If you want to only enable 9 months from the start date, you can follow the steps below.

    1). Create two date picker field.

    2). Create a Start and End date for both date picker field.

    3). Now create a condition that will copy the value of the Check in date into Check out date.

    Hi again Jed,


    I tried to add your formula below:

    "With Jotform's date picker, you can disable 9 months from today's date. Assuming that 9 months is equal to 270 days, you can add this to the date range today>today+270."


    Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work at all and I can still select dates further than 9 months in advance.


    Any suggestions?

    It's working on the cloned version of your form where I left only the Check in and Check out date field.
