We have our Absence Request form setup this way.

The FROM Date is not restricted, but the TO Date can't be any date before the FROM Date.

Here's how we have that setup (this is for Civil Service employees, which is why you see "CS"):

These fields are in a table, so we use have this Class on the table: MincsTable

On the FROM Date, we use the Class: minCSfrom

On the TO Date, we use the Class: minCSto

And then we use this Javascript (this was written in v10 and tested in v11 Classic Designer):

$(document).ready (function () {

 $('.MincsTable').on('change','.minCSfrom input', function () {   

    $(' tbody tr').each(function() {
      var theCSFromDate = $(this).find('.minCSfrom input');
      var theCSToDate = $(this).find('.minCSto input');
      var theCSDate = new Date(theCSFromDate.val());
      var year = theCSDate.getFullYear();                         // YYYY
      var month = ("0" + (theCSDate.getMonth() + 1)).slice(-2);    // MM
      var day = ("0" + theCSDate.getDate()).slice(-2);            // DD
      var minDate = (year +"-"+ month +"-"+ day); // Results in "YYYY-MM-DD" for today's date 
      $(theCSToDate).attr('min', minDate);



I hope that helps!

Hi Carlos,

If you're able to use the latest version of the modern Forms designer, you can set up a field rule to do this for you without any code. I have quite a few that look like this:

Once the first date field is filled out, this rule forces the second date field to be after the first one. But, this is only in the latest version of Forms (I think) in the modern designer. If you have a bunch of CSS and Javascript already in your form, it might be tough to switch to the modern designer.
