    Asked by daveescam on April 23, 2014 at 02:24 PM

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It is possible to use 'today +/- number of days' conditions based on a DateTime field (located under Quick Tools).

    There is an example with the DateTime field and a custom Text field.

    I have used the following condition:

    You can also Clone it to check the back end.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    @daveescam

    As of checking your form, I see no condition similar to what my colleague has explained.

    It should be Show/Hide condition. Please follow this visual guide:

    Example:

    If you need further assistance, let us know here.

    Hi eltoncris thanks for responding i tried but what i was looking for is if they choose today or tomorrow they couldnt submit the form. i tried the show and hide which is great but they can still choose the date and submit it, is there a way to hide the datepicker if it doesnt meet the criteria?

     

    thanxs in advanced

    @David

    Your form users can still submit the form because there is no condition to hide the Submit (Haz tu pedido) button as my colleague Mike explained. Your condition to show the warning message is working fine, so all you need to do is to add one more "action" to "Hide Haz tu pedido" button. It must be in this way:

    Then the form will work as expected and the form users will not be able to submit the form the date is equal to "Today" or "Tomorrow".

    But if you still want to hide the Date picker instead of the Submit button, then simply choose to Hide the "Cuando empiezas" field instead of the "Haz tu pedido" this way:

    Here is my cloned form: http://form.jotform.co/form/41134439000844

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this query.

    Thanks
