    How can I leave a date field empty by default in the configurable list?

    Asked by Navassa on March 25, 2015 at 01:53 PM

    I have a multi-line form.   the date/month/year are selectable.   The default always shows current date.  Is there a way the the cell default can be blank and permit the user to select date , etc.

     

    Second Question:    Is there a way to make lines in the form REQUIRED to be filled if the FIRST column (most left) has an entry

     

    IN my UrL  example   I I use the drop down to fill the first cell (most left), then I want the entire line to be REQUIRED to be filled.  

    If I do not use the next line, but If I don't enter/ use the  first cell on the 2nd line....then the line is not require to be filled

     

    I gues a "if" / "then"

     

    Thank you

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to leave empty the date field in the configurable list since it will be populated automatically with today's date.

    However, you can achieve this, using dropdowns as in this form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50835615738967

    Feel free to clone the form to your account if you want to.

    Second Question:    Is there a way to make lines in the form REQUIRED to be filled if the FIRST column (most left) has an entry

    You can do this by adding an asterisk character to the field you want to set as required.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
    Thanks.
