Hello,

I have a "date" field. I try to implement the following:

.>= today()

on the "Constraints" column, without any success.

Searching previous posts, I made sure that I have the latest version of ArcGIS Connect (3.9) installed.

I also tried this workaround without success:

date(format-date(${value},'%Y/%m/%d'))>= today()

Any tips?

Thank you,

George

The constraint is implemented upon submission, not before that, so it does work.

Leaving it here for future reference.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi George,

Indeed, it seems that since 3.5, the validation occurs only when the form is submitted.

I made a new thread some time ago about that issue:

https://community.esri.com/thread/244051-constraintvalidation-occurs-only-when-the-survey-is-submitt...

And Gee made an ArcGIS idea to change that behavior:

Please consider voting for it !
