    Hi,

    Are you referring to this form https://www.jotform.com/40028631588961 ?

    If you set the DateTime field "Default Time" to OFF, the date field will NOT be auto filled by the current date/time.

     

    Hope this help. Please inform us if this does not answers your question.

    Thanks.

    Thankyou , but I need to make this as simple with as few click as possible for the users as it may bee a lot of recurring  customers on it. And I have other forms and other field that I may have to do the same for so... so if it is possible to turn of autofill on single fields it would be great.. A work around that I could use... is to use radio buttons and let the user chose between the date today and other date with a condition that hide the calendar but not sure if it works... But if you are able to suggest other workarounds: )

    Hi,

    As is now, the Autofill feature (How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature-Save-Form-Entries-to-Continue-Later) is not capable of selecting which field it should be ON or OFF. 

    So, this option is not achievable in your form at the moment.

    --

    I need further details about your requirement so I can provide the nearest possible workaround base on my understanding.

    First, can you please clarify about the purpose of the Date field?  From what I understand so far, you wanted the Date filled to be pre-filled by default and you do not want the user to be able to alter/change the value of this date. Is this correct?

    The only option you want the user to be able to do on Date field is to select an already pre-defined dates -- you do not want to allow the user to just select any dates.

    If this is the case, you can use the regular Textbox field, fill it with defined dates and make it Read-Only -- it should work, and the form user will not be able to alter this set dates.

    I will wait for your response.

    Thanks.

    Thankyou... but I want the form to be prefilled with the date today, cause about 80 % of the users by the daytickets the same day as they will go skiing. But sometimes they will by tickets from another date ahead in time maybe for tomorrow or a seaseon pass for next year... It will not be possible to go back in time just ahead in time ...

     

    Thanks

    Can you please confirm if this is the form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40028631588961 you are working this on?

    Base on this form, may I ask why do you need to set the Auto Fill on?

    I am just not sure why there is a need for Auto fill when your form is very small. Usually, the auto fill feature is only use for longer and multiple pages form.

    Thanks.

    P.S.

    Hi,

    I created a demo form base on your idea. I used the form's source code embed to re-position the prices field.

    You can test the demo form and inform us your thought about it.

    Thanks.

    Thankyou see the other thread for information...

    I need the autofill cause there is a lot of recurring clients... and they have to remember their skicard number to refill it .. the more  easy it is for the client to use the form the more sales will i do:)
