    My apologies. I just realized that the calculation workaround is not needed. You can simply use the Time field in the condition. Use colon in the condition for the Time, like this:

    I agree with you. There's no way the condition will work if the Date and Time aren't connected to each other. There should be a way to use the DateTime field with Time option enabled in the conditional logic. I have submitted this to our developers as a feature request. If there are updates, you should know it through this thread.

    Thanks

    I really appreciate your feedback and think it would widen the appeal of Jotform to more folk.

    Jotform is a good product with an ability to configure satisfying many requirements.

    Taking the opportunity to provide unattended opening to book events would be a giant leap!

    I look forward to hearing implementation.

    Thanks for your answer, it would be very helpful to be able to use the time for conditional fields.
