    Enabling /Disabling a particular form question based on date.

    Asked by AA_C on October 29, 2016 at 10:18 AM

    On my forms 52934584917973, 52954614877974, there is a question, radio, asking if this a Renew or New membership application

    At certain times of the year members can Renew and at other times all applications are considered New.

    This is true for Individual, Family or Club. 

    Right now I'm commenting out the Renew radio box until Nov. 1, and I have to remember to edit the html to remove the comment <!-- --> from all three membership types then comment them out again later on.

    My question is, is there a way to block out these three questions, lets say between March 1st until Nov 1st of every year and have it default to "NEW" membership between those dates and then enable the question if not between those dates,  on my English and French forms?

    I think your requirement can be achieved by using the date field on the form. Are the users able to register for a new membership throughout the year while the renew is enabled for a specific period? 

    Is the form embedded on your web page using the source code of the form? If so, you may add some Javascript code to the form source code to enbale/disable or show/hide the options. 

    Please provide us with the options to be displayed/enabled for which period so that we can provide you with necessary assistance.


    We will wait for your response. Thank you!

    Sorry about the long delay in answering.... busy busy...

       1. Users can apply for new membership year round.

       2. The form is embedded at our site.

    I would need help with the javascript.


    Best regards,

    Hello JF,

    I appreciate all the work work you have done for us in the past and understand fully.

    There is no rush on this request. I have enabled the question as of Nov.1st and it should stay that way until March sometime.

    Thank you again
