Date within: Requires respondents to select any date before or after the specified date. Users get to choose how many days before and after the specified date are eligible 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 1 month or a custom date.
For example, if you select the 1 day option respondents will be required to select dates within 1 day (before, during or after) of the selected date, therefore if you set January 15th, 2020 as your baseline date, respondents will be required to select within January 14th, January 15th or January 16th, 2020.
After setting up the validation, whenever respondents fail to comply with the criteria a message will be displayed prompting them to do so.
