    How to global edit date fields

    Asked by jcirelli on May 27, 2014 at 11:08 AM

    Hello,

    I utilize the JotForms for inventory and expiration date tracking.  As such, I have hundreds of date fields.  Is there a way to globaly change the allowed date range in the date drop down, instead of going to each individual date selector?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, there's none. I would recommend duplicating the field instead:

     

    When duplicating field, all the field properties will also be copied. Of course, you have to change the label. Should be an easy step compare to when adding a new field then changing the properties manually. Well, it's assuming that you will create the form. If you already have the form with the fields on it, then you have to go through each field.

    Thanks
