Event Request Form Date Restrictions

Users may configure event request forms to limit event meeting requests to a specific date range.  For example, depending on how the dates are defined within the form, this feature can be used in the following ways:

  • Establish a cutoff date for event requests (e.g. meetings can be requested for any date between now and the start of Fall semester).
  • Create a delayed start date for event request (e.g. meetings may not be requested for dates before the end of Spring semester).
  • Define a future date range during which meetings may be requested (e.g. meetings may only be requested for next Summer).

Once date restrictions are configured for a form, those dates are enforced at the time of event request.  If any requested meeting falls outside of the date range, the request is prevented and an on-screen validation warning is displayed for the requestor.
