    For the appointment element, when it sets to 1 rolling day, how does it count? 24 hours of the timeslot or everyday after local time 12:00am? Thank you.

    Hi there,

    The rolling days count every day after local time 12:00AM.

    For example, I selected 5 rolling days so it is showing appointments for the next 5 days. However, if you have selected appointments to show only on weekdays, then no appointments will show on weekends.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you Zahra. One more question, can rolling days set to "Today"?

    You're welcome.

    can rolling days set to "Today"?

    I don't think we can add letters in that field. However, if you want to show appointments for today, you can add 1 in rolling days.

    Were you able to set it to "0"? It's not required to use the rolling days feature to use the Appointment Field.

    You can manually add appointment slots for the day you want.

    Please keep the rolling day's field empty and add a start & end date for the appointment slots.

    For example, if you want to show appointment slots today only then add today's date in the start & end date.

    Please see the screencast below:

    Are you offering different appointment slots on different days? If no, then you can set the end date accordingly or just skip it.

    I would recommend reading this guide: https://www.jotform.com/blog/how-to-schedule-an-appointment/. This will help you in setting up your form.
