    Dates difference calculator: Unable to set a year prior to 2004

    Asked by lifesolutions on December 12, 2014 at 10:20 AM

    I am trying to allow my clients to set the to and from date the attended school. The data difference widget only goes back to 2004, but obviously we need it to go back further than that. Is there a way to do this?

    Have you found anything out? It looks like I may just have to add a text field so they can type in an older date because so far I have not found a solution.

    The ticket is still open which means that an update has not been provided yet. However, if you would like to explore the date picker field as seen in your updated form you should be fine. As soon as an update is being provided in relation to the widget, you will be notified via this thread.

    We have extended the date selection to years before 2004 -
