    Hi.

    We are an organization that is going to offer people to travel to sierra leone as volunteers. The volunteer program starts twice a month, every second tuesday. The users should only have the possibility to select dates from 3 months in the future and further in the future.

     

    As of now i have used a dropdown for month-selection and a matrix for each month with only the available dates in that month, and plenty of conditionals. Is there any way to do this better? We have 5 of these forms, and it will be time-consuming to always have to update the forms and autoresponders manually.

     

    Here is one such form: http://www.jotform.com//?formID=30413000582134

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, to limit the month dates you have to use Source Code when embedding your form. You may edit the Months shown on the dropdown. Here is a thread that shows how it is done: http://www.jotform.com/answers/107026-Limit-month-selection-in-birth-date-picker-tool

    Thank you.

    Ok. How do you change the available dates in the date picker when embedding the source code? I embedded the source code but I could not find any place to edit the date picker...

    You will have to get the Source code then manually remove the months that you don't want to appear on the dropdown from the source code.

    After editing the codes as you want them to appear, you can embed it to your site.

    Thank you.

    Ok. What i'd really like to achieve is more of the kind of booking that flight-companies have. That when you choose an option (flight) you see the available dates for this option. The other dates is greyed out or not shown at all.

     

    Any way to achieve this with jotform?

    I am truly sorry but that's not possible with JotForm. We do not have options for limiting dates as of the moment. That might be possible using your form source code and write a custom script that perform such function but it seems quite complicated which I don't think I can help with. Sorry about that.
