    Conditional Logic: "Update/Calculate Field" condition is not copying the correct date when using it with date fields.

    Asked by samspar on March 04, 2016 at 01:40 PM

    In my jotform, there is a field called "start date of event" and a hidden calculation at the bottom called "start date for calendar." See the conditional logic below:  

    However, the calculation isn't working. Start Date for Calendar consistently is one day earlier than it should be, whether Prep/Setup Day is equal to yes or no. I'm wondering if this has something to do with our recent leap day?

     

    Please help as this is causing a lot of problems!

    I have tested the condition on a sample form and seems like it is not copying the correct value, it is adding a previous date, I will escalate it to our second level so one of our developers will take a look and will fix the issue, you will receive news about it soon. 

    As a workaround while the issue is fixed, you may update your conditions and add a day to the current condition to get it working as expected, see the conditions on the image below:

    Hi,

    This has now been fixed.  There will no longer be issues with inserting numeric dates into other date fields in the western hemisphere.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Regards,

    Nicholas
