    Also, can you make the birth date automatically populate the age on the form?

    We do not have a specific widget that calculates age but there's a workaround using form calculation.

    Demo: https://form.jotform.com/61880675038968

    Feel free to clone this form so you can figure out the whole setup. Guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/28-Cloning-a-Form-from-a-Web-Page

    Here's how I did it:

    1. You need are 2 Date Picker fields and 2 Form Calculation Widgets in your form

    2. In the 2 Form Calculation Widgets, you need to define formula on each of them. The first calculation field (Days) gets the number of days, here's the formula:

    In the second calculation field (Age), this will calculate the Age base from the given birth date by the user using the math Floor function.
