    -> after setting the date of arrival, automatically add 3 days to this date and update the field with date of departure (for instance, I arrive on the 1st of October and the form automatically sets my date of departure on 4 October).

    It seems that we do not have a direct date manipulation option for such case. You might consider using a work around based on a form source code and custom javascript. Please see the next thread to find out an example:

    How can I set the date time tool to display a future date?

    I will update this thread if I find a better solution. Thank you.

    Thanks for response. I am afraid, but I haven't the strong grasp of java scripting at all. Can I ask the support team of Jotform to adjust the adding 3 day script to my form? It's crucial for user-centering my form.

    I strongly hope for your deep understanding. Great thanks.

    Hi,

    I would suggest searching for a freelancer on oDesk or some similar website to find someone that would be able to create this functionality for you and implement it into jotforms the source code for you.

    I will however open a feature request to our developers in regards to this so if it becomes available we would update you through this thread.

    Best Regards,

    Greetings, I just write to inform you that I adjusted the adding days script to my form and it works successfully.

    At the same time, I'm using form lightbox on my website. Thus, what should I do in order to use my form with adding days script directly in lightbox on my website? I tried to upload new page and change "base", but it doesn't work. Please, show me an example of lightbox code.

    Strongly hope for your deep understanding.

    Great. By my last question was about embedding my form with day's script on my website within light box. Thus, this question pending an answer now.
