    Hello varshavan,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    With which form you are having this issue with? I did check few of your last edited forms and one of them had date field. You have not configured it to disable any dates. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Since you have not set the date limits that is the reason it is not working for you and users will be able to select just any dates in the date field.

    Please configure the "Limit Dates" and that should solve your problem. Please be noted that you need to uncheck the checkboxes which you do not want to display.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hello ashwin_d,

     I am using booking inquiry form as test form and trying to deselect few dates on date time picker. it is not working for me. Did you actually manage to deselect the date on my form? Here the screen shot of my settings,

     

    After deselection also user is able to select all dates. No dates are grayed out.

    Will you please look into the form one more time?

    Thanks

    Hello ashwin_d,

    It seems there is some issue with auto saving of form. after manually saving the form my setting remains and disable date works. Thank you for all your support.

    regards

    Hello Varshavan,

    I am glad to know that your form is now working as expected.

    Have you disabled the "Auto Save" feature of your form editor? Please check the screenshot below how to ensure the auto save is not disabled:

     

    Thank you!
