    How do I add a default date range to the Date/Time field?

    Asked by cariocaproductions on June 24, 2013 at 02:50 PM

    I'd like to only specify a date range in the date/time field to pop-up in the calendar.  (i.e. September 27, 2013 through October 2, 2013. Is this possible?

    As is now, you cannot customize the date/time field within the form builder. You can do it by using the form's source code (you will have to manually alter the content of the field in the calendar.js file).

    Alternatively, you can also use the technique describe on this guide How-to-Add-a-Time-Only-Field
    Instead of time, put your required date range instead in the drop down lists.

    I usually use spreadsheets to easily create this date ranges, then, I just copy/paste the selections to the drop down list option in the form



    So, in your form you can apply the 2nd option I mentioned, and just complement it with Time field so there is Date and Time field in your form instead of the Date/Time field.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
