How do I restrict the range of dates in a Form input field?

I am building a reservation system and want to limit the days that a customer can select from in our Form. There are two versions on this - I want to restrict the input for the date field to only today and into the future, no days in the past.

The other option I would like to do is to block certain days in the future that we are not taking reservations.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    I've found standing behind them with a paddle to be a solid solution.

    When unable to do so you can use a standard dropdown with the list of dates, and convert it to a date in a helper column, which is an annoying and painful solution, but a solution nonetheless.

    Hopefully they add this function to form logic, but I don't believe that there is currently a solution other than what i've listed above.

  • Thanks for the feedback. Yea - I really want the simplicity of selecting on a calendar so they know the day of the week. The new form logic does not appear to support this - it only allows you to choose subsequent fields. I thought about the drop down list - but just seems like too much work. I am hoping SS plans to allow more flexibility with forms in general.


  • I think there is another less painful solution, create a dropdown list column with the date ranges you want, then create a date formatted column with a function that reads the specific date you need from the dropdown list column, that way is more secured and automated.
