Feature Send dynamic emails from a bot.

Is the any plan that the same min/max control to be introduce to Date type field ?
Also we are not able to pass expression to this min/max properties, as no flask icon is there. Just hard coded date value is accepted?

Thank you @Liz_Lynch
Waiting for your further advice.

Good morning! I just confirmed with the dev team that it’s not on the radar at this time. Would you mind filing a feature request for this update so that it can be appropriately prioritized?

Thanks and apologies for the delay in getting back to you!

Thank you for checking this, noted.

I dont come up with the use case of this additional feature, unlesss we could use the expression to dynamically fix the min/max values, so for me personelly never gonna use and touch this function apart from particuar case where we can hard -code the min/max datetime values, but it is less likely to happen.

I bet you more of the same questions why this came only for the datetime field, while the date type field is untouched. Surely confusion will arise.

For testing I pushed 2021/1/1 - 2021/1/3 for min/max values for datetime and it converted automatically like image above.

I assumed the user can input the datetime vaule within this range and it works as valid if type of constrain, but it was not.
Even after we set the min/max datetime value, it looks like do nothing .
