Black out dates in a form (date type column)

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics


I have created a form and have a column named "Date Item is Needed" which is a date type column. However, the requestor needs to allow at least 10 days from the actual day. Is there a way to always black out those 10 first days?

    The best way would be to have a separate column in your sheet that adds 10 days to the submitted column.  Then in the rest of your solution, just reference the new column.

    There is no way to restrict those dates within the form. You wold have to look into a 3rd party form such as Google Forms (easy to use and integrates into SS very easily) or use help text on the form along with an automated Update Request to instruct the submitter to select a date within the appropriate range.
