    hello on my hand and foot print form how can I stop customers selecting a time when we are closed ? Is there anyway I can set the clock limit to trading hours only? As it seems a free for all when they are booking and getting funny when we say we are closed or do not open until ... tia😊

    Hello
    Thanks for the answer unfortunately it will not work for me as we need where anyone can book anytime using our forms but the appointment times they choose are between Specific to the hours we are open
    So if ‘Linda’ visits our website at 2am and wishes book to come in 2 days later between the hours that we open 10.30-5pm
    But because the options are 24 hours people are booking for say 9am and then we have to go back and explain we do not open until.... and using these forms it meant to stop the tooing and froing emails that can happen
    I have put our opening times above the box but this does not deter them!
    Best wishes

    So you want to just restrict users from selecting the time in which you are not not open. The best way to achieve this requirement is by adding separate dropdown fields for time and add the options based on your requirement.

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this works as expected: https://form.jotform.com/92883774336976

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.
