This add-on specifically focuses on limiting the selectable dates within Gravity Forms Date Picker fields.
With Gravity Forms Limit Dates, you have precise control over the selectable date range in your forms, providing a user-friendly interface for easy management.
The add-on offers a range of features and options to customize the date limitations according to your specific requirements.
One of the key features is the ability to set a minimum and maximum date range. You can define the date range manually, based on the current date, or by referring to the date selected in another field.
This feature allows you to ensure that users can only select dates within a specific range, preventing them from choosing dates outside the defined boundaries.
Another useful feature is the option to restrict the selectable dates to future or past dates only. By enabling this feature, you can require users to pick a date that is greater than the current day or limit them to selecting dates in the past.
This is particularly useful in scenarios where you want to enforce date selection within a certain timeframe.
The add-on also enables you to limit the selectable dates by day of the week. You can specify which days of the week should be available for selection, allowing you to restrict the options based on your specific requirements.
For example, you can choose to make only weekdays selectable or limit it to weekends.
Additionally, Gravity Forms Limit Dates allows you to add exceptions for specific dates. This means you can make certain dates available or unavailable regardless of other date restrictions.
This feature is beneficial when you need to override the general limitations for specific occasions or events.
Linked date fields are another powerful capability of this add-on. When you have multiple date fields in your form, you can establish a relationship between them so that the date selected in one field determines the minimum or maximum date available in another field.
This feature ensures that the date selection remains consistent and aligned across related fields.
Gravity Forms Limit Dates also offers timezone support. The dates entered in the form fields are automatically converted to the timezone configured in your WordPress settings, ensuring consistency and accuracy in date management.
To provide further flexibility, the add-on includes date modifiers. You can modify the minimum and maximum date limits by adding or subtracting days, weeks, months, or years. This allows you to dynamically adjust the selectable date range based on your specific needs.
The add-on provides an option to display the date-picker inline within the form, eliminating the need for a separate popup. This inline date-picker feature enhances the user experience by keeping the date selection process within the form itself.
Gravity Forms Limit Dates ensures automatic validation of dates, even when entered manually by users. The validation takes place on both the client-side and server-side, ensuring that only valid dates within the defined limitations are accepted.
When used in conjunction with other Gravity Perks add-ons, such as Gravity Forms Read Only, Gravity Forms Limit Dates integrates seamlessly and enhances the functionality of enforcing the use of the date-picker and enforcing limitations.
Overall, Gravity Forms Limit Dates is designed to provide granular control over the selectable dates in Gravity Forms, allowing you to manage and customize date limitations with ease.
Its user-friendly interface and comprehensive features make it a valuable tool for scenarios where precise control over date selection is essential, such as event registrations, appointment scheduling, and various other form applications.
