    Hello, I'm using jotform as an order form so customers can select the food they want, the flavors, and what not. We have a pick up system and as long as the order is placed by Wednesday, it will be ready for pick up the following week on a Monday. Is there a way to put a buffer period on when they can pick up their order? I hope this makes sense.

    For example: if i were to place an order today (tuesday) i want to be able to pick it up next week either on monday or anytime after that. i shouldnt be allowed to place my order today and set the pick up time as tomorrow as the order wouldnt be ready

    Yes, your requirement can be achieved using an Appointment field on the form - https://www.jotform.com/blog/how-to-schedule-an-appointment/

    On the appointment field, there is an option called the "Minimum scheduling notice section":

    Set it up to 120 hours (or the required days in hours), so only the required date is shown for the pickup.

    Would this help?

    Thanks that does help! Now is there a way to add conditions? So when someone clicks "Yes." when they want to pick up their order, it shows the date and time for pickup?

    Yes, you can use Show/Hide conditional logic to show the appointment field only when the answer is "Yes":
