How do I format the date value in a conditional?Asked by toddsforms on November 04, 2015 at 11:53 AM
I'm trying to create a conditional that makes a field visible when the date entered is after a specific day. The goal is, if the client has been living in their home for less than 3 years, I need them to tell me their previous address. I've tried all sorts of ways to write the date as a value, but none seem to work when I preview the form. How do I write the date as a value for the conditional.
Here's a screenshot of what I'm working with.
We are sorry for the inconveniences. It looks like that explanation text is not added to the new conditions wizard yet.
Here is an example from the old conditions wizard.
So you can try with the next value to trigger 'for less than 3 years' dates.
Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance.
I would like to add that this is also possible to limit dates on the DateTime fields.
Thanks, Mike. I have it working. Is there a way to program the conditional so that it shows a field if the date entered is 3 years prior to today's date, rather than a static date?
Yes, the first reply by Mike to use today -1095 in the conditional logic should work. That is a dynamic date setting.
Awesome. Every thing is in order. Thank you so much.
