Trying to set a conditional flag based on the date to mark a form late

    Hi,

    I'm trying to make my form smart enough to flag late filings but still leave it open to allow them. We turned this form off on the deadline date and then had to jump through hoops to get stragglers registered.

    I would rather flag them as late so we know how to handle them. I have a late field that could be left blank or defaulted to No and would like to have a conditional setting of Yes after the deadline.

    I did what I thought was right with the condition, but it doesn't work when I test.

    What am I missing?

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The condition is not working because the form is not capturing the current date, to do it just follow the steps below :

    1.Click on the date field.

    2.On the top tool bar, click on the Current Date button and then mark the Current option.

    Now, your condition should work fine, here is my sample form, you can clone it if you want :
