    Hi - I need to create a form that gives a selection of dates and times for booking an appointment to meet at a trade show.

    If possible I would like to disable any appointment option that has already been selected by someone previously.

    It can be in a calendar or list format. Could you please let me know if this is possible and how to proceed.


    Thanks as always for your help.


    Kind regards

    Unfortunately this is not possible at this time. Nevertheless this feature has been added in our Developer's Feature Request list.

    Alternatively you can add a Calendar Report via iframe back in to your form. if you are using the DateTime tool.


    So users can view already selected time dates:
