    How to extend date on forms to include 2015?

    Asked by designsby on December 30, 2014 at 12:31 PM

    I have a number of reservation forms on three different sites and need to add 2015 as an option. I tried to do it from the tool bar but wasn't successful. Is it an internal fix that is needed? Do I remove and re-add the date segment of the forms?

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40494783759976

    or
    http://laurelacreskennels.com to Reservation link in navigation to "forms"

    Thanks.

    Hey Patty,

    You can have this done internally by setting the Year From and Year To in the property settings for the date field. Please take a look at my modified version of your form here. I managed to get the range between the year 1999 to 2020. Please reference the screen recording below on how to make these changes to you form.

    Please let me know if additional assistance is needed. Hope this works! 

    Cheers,

    Hi Patty,

    You will need to update the Year From and Year To fields.

    I see that seanmccthy has just posted the answer and I would modify mine to include few more details as his answer is correct.

    You can do the same by setting the options from the toolbar:

    Year From

    and Year To

    What is important is to click on the green OK button after setting the value, or it would not get saved, but also to set both of the fields. Setting only Year To could start showing you all years from 0 to 2015, but if you set them both, it would only shown the years in between.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    I  updated the form. Saved it. Previewed it in the Jotform system. Checked it twice. It now displays 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 on the actual form in Jotform.
    No change on what displays when I click on the website link in the page navigation.
    Checked the code in the web page link and it seems fine.

    Went away for a few hours thinking the system might need to "update" itself.

    The form still doesn't display the new years.

    Now what?
    Thanks.

    I had already refreshed the browser, but doing it for a third time was the charm.
    Works great now!


    Thanks.
