    I'd like to be able to disable every OTHER Thursday from a start date.

    I'd like to be able to disable every OTHER Thursday from a start date. I know I can compile a list of those dates manually, but is there an easier way?

    If you want to disable Thursdays, simply unchecked the day as explained on the guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/337-How-to-Use-the-Limit-Dates-feature-in-a-DateTime-field

    Example: https://form.jotform.co/53426637160858

    BDAVID, I'm sorry if I didn't communicate this correctly, but that wasn't my question. I already know how to activate/deactivate particular days on a weekly basis. My form currently has only Thursdays available in the datetime. However, I only want every OTHER Thursday to be available. For instance, on your graphic I would need only December 3, 17 and 31st to be available.

    Unfortunately, I believe this is not possible to do in one click.

    But you can list all the other Thursdays that you want to be disabled. Here's an example below. Under "Disable Custom Dates", just list all the dates of every other Thursday that you want to disable.

     

    This is how it looks like: https://form.jotform.com/53434114913954.

    Let us know if that works.

    Could you please read my original question before posting answers? First you answered a question I didn't ask, and now you're given me an answer I said that I knew already. I'm looking for a simpler solution, so if that's not available a simple "no, that's not possible" would suffice.

    Please accept my apologies for missing the last part of your original post.

    Unfortunately, there's no available option in the "Date Limits" to disable every other Thursdays.
