    I am trying to set up a date condition.

    Asked by MelissaH on November 04, 2013 at 03:21 PM

    I am trying to set up a date condition. If today's date (which is the first date field on the form) is after the 20th, then a different date field would pre populate with the first day of the next month, without being able to change it to a previous date. My form is http://form.jotform.co/form/33017165043848 and want cid_21 to be populated with the today's date or later if cid_5 is todays date is before the 20th of the month. If it's (cid_5)the 20th or later I want cid_21 to only allow the date the be the first of the next month or later.

    I have replied to your original thread:

    Smart forms conditional formatting

    The form builder is limited in some areas, so that not everything is possible without dirty coding. We are sorry for the inconveniences.
