    set a limit for submissions for the current day at a certain time

    Asked by mannyledesm on February 19, 2016 at 07:10 PM

    What i would like to do is make it so that if someone is trying to make a submission for an appointment for the same day, if it is after a certain time, it does not allow this and tells them to pick a different day.




    it seems that this might not be available to do.  But if there is a workaround please let me know.


    Thank you


    P.S. I've provided a screenshot of the conditional logic i've tried to no avail.

    So basically, you want to allow all future dates to be selected for pickup, and today if submission is made before a certain time.

    After a certain time of today, you will only be able to select future pickup dates.

    I would recommend that you change your conditional rule into this:

    IF "Pickup Day Requested" is equal to date with value today
    IF "Submission time" is after value 13:59
    THEN hide submit button, and show error message

    This is how it looks on my end:

    You can check out a cloned version of your form with this change applied here:


    You can clone it back into your account to take a closer look into how it is set up. Let us know if you need any further assistance, and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for the help. I did not know that you could just use today as a value. Very helpful.
