    Delay at date field

    Asked by beugt on September 19, 2013 at 01:48 PM


    we are using the formular for a online reservation at a bowling center.


    Our customers are told, that we need a delay of 48 hours between the online reservation and the start time of their visit. Mot of them accept it, but there a some reservations where they don't (example: Date the reservation ist sent to us is the 19th. It should only be possible to do the reservation for the 21st. 

    Is there a way to do it?

    Sorry for my bad english. I hope you understand what i mean ;-)

    Yours sincerly

    you can hide the submit button if certain date field conditions are matched, then you can show the submit button if other condition is matched.

    For example:

    If date field is equal to today or if date field is equal to today+1,then hide submit button.

    If date field is after today+2 then show submit button.

    Please check this example I made for you.
