    Make sure you do not leave this check ticked:

     

    Also, use the format yyyy-mm-dd

    Actually I gave you the opposite instruction, you must uncheck the "Past" and leave the "Future" ticked.

    Since you need to disable dates before a specific date, you should just set the limit in the "Start & End date" section and leave everything above being checked. Example:

    Here's a sample form showing you the working limit: https://form.jotform.com/53172291601953.

    Thanks

    I have inspected form that you provided and I saw that you disabled dates before 1997-04-01 only on your first DateTime field. If you want to disable dates before 1997-04-01 on all fields, than you need to set limit for "Start date" on all six DateTime fields inside of your form. You can follow instructions provided by my colleague Welvin and apply them on all six DateTime fields. I have cloned your form and set limit for "Start date" 1997-04-01 for all six fields. Here is my cloned form:

    Feel free to clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your help. It appears that I was going to the next field before it was saved.
