Formstack new feature: Date-based calculations and conditional logic
The Formstack Date/Time field can now be used with conditional logic. Formstack has also introduced the capability to use Date/Time field in calculations to evaluate the number of days, months or years between two dates on a form. This could be very useful to determine time spans to calculate for example number of days you wish to book for a hotel.
Formstack has updated a few support documents to help with the new features:
- Date/Time Field Overview - In the Date/Time field you can now disable selecting a date past a certain date in the future.
- Date/Time Field Calculations - You can now create calculations using Date/Time fields. This is useful if you need to calculate the number of days between two dates entered into your form or someone's age given their birthdate.
- Validating Age With Date/Time field - Do you want only people over a certain age to fill out your form? This is possible with date field calculations. Here's a step by step walk-through on how to validate age on your form.
- Date Field Logic - You can now create conditional logic rules using a Date/Time field on your form. This gives you the option to show/hide specific fields based on a date, date range, or period of time.
