    Using Date/Time Picker is there a way to only allow selection of a date in the future (i.e. not the past)

    Asked by braceletofhope on October 31, 2010 at 02:35 PM

    I see that conditions can detect if a date is before or after a date but I'm not sure how I would use that to only allow future dates. Is there a way?

    In our case we are allowing people to request a speaking engagement and of course that can only happen in the future. I'm just trying to elliminate confusion if a mistake is made. Thanks

    Unfortunately, there is now way to do that. You cannot allow only future dates.

    I see that the potential may be there using conditions. I can ask if the date selected is after (or before) a certain date. However, it appears that I must set a specific date. Is there a way to allow us to specify a function that returns todays date? If not, can you please put it on your feature request list?  Thanks

    I have submitted a ticket for your feature request of allowing only future dates. Note that we cannot guarantee a lead time as to when this feature will be implemented, if at all. Our development team are currently busy working on a lot of things, thus, you may not hear from them regarding this issue for quite some time. Thank you for understanding.
