Gravity Forms Restrict Dates Add-on support

Gravity FormsRestrict Dates is a Gravity Forms add-on that restricts users from selecting specific dates in your Gravity Form’s date picker field.

This add-on allows you to manage the date ranges and days in your form’s display by adding a custom date field in your Gravity Form.

Add-On Features

  • This add-on gives admin the ability to use two filters in the DATE FIELD, namely, Minimum and Maximum date ranges.
  • Supports setup and connection with multiple forms.
  • Allow or restrict users to select any future or past dates.
  • Limit by day of the week – Restrict selectable days of the week.
  • Specify exceptions for specific dates – Control availability for any date/day on the calendar.
  • Have the option to restrict dates and days. (Determine which days of the week will be selectable for use)
  • Link dates with other predefined fields. (Any selected date can be used as a comparative benchmark with another field date)
  • Easy-to-use – Manage settings with ease.
  • Automatically tell your users if their selection is valid or not.


How to configure the add-on settings

Step 1: Create a form and select the “Date” option to add a date field. You will find this option under the ADVANCED FIELDS section.


Step 2: Once selected, go to the date field settings.


Step 3: Navigate to the “Date Field” section and click on the ADVANCED tab. See the screenshot below to see where you can find the Date Settings.


Step 4: Here, admin can set the Minimum Date, Maximum Date, and Days of the Week according to their requirements.

Step 5: The Minimum and Maximum Date Settings will allow you to specify the beginning and ending dates inside the date field.

How to set a specific date

Under Date settings, you can set a specific date by selecting the said option in the drop-down menu. Once the “Set Specific Date” option is selected, you can add the date you want in the field next to the menu (See the screenshot below.)


You can set both the earliest (Min) and latest dates (Max) under DATE SETTINGS.

How to set the current date

You can set the earliest (Min) or latest date (Max) in the current data field by selecting the “Current Date” option in the drop-down menu.


How to set the days of the week

This setting allows you to restrict dates under certain criteria – restrict selectable days of the week (e.g., Monday – Sunday).

By default, All days are valid. Uncheck the “All Days” option and proceed to select specific days to set your parameters.



If you want to add an exception date you can add by clicking the Add Exception button.

An exception works with both selectable dates and unselectable dates. If the expected date is selectable, it will now be unselectable. If the expected date is unselectable, it will now be selectable.


Front view screenshots

As we can see in the screenshot below, the date field displays days from 7/22/2019.

The days Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday are now disabled.


See the screenshot below: The “10+ days” condition was executed in the DATE FIELD. This means that 10 more days were added after the current date. Furthermore, the days that we selected have now been disabled.
