Weekends not selectable in a date time picker (portal)

Hello the community,

We have face many time the same problem: when submitting a ticket/request through the portal, clients choose the weekend when they are asked which date is desired. However, as we are not working the weekend, we would like to make it impossible (see attachment).

Is it a way to make impossible to select weekend dates in a custom field "Date time picker"? (and from the portal or not?)

Thank you for your help

Hi @Dorian Schauwers 

Unfortunately Jira does not have much functionality to respect working days, so I do not believe it's possible to block these days out from being selected.

However you could create an automation rule which changes the date selected if it is a weekend:

The trigger would either be when the issue is created or when your date field is changed (I have used the due date field in my example, but this could be replaced with your Desired Deadline field.

You could then add in a couple of conditions using smart values to check if the selected date is a Saturday or a Sunday.


If a Saturday or Sunday has been selected, then you can use another smart value in an action to edit the date field to set the date back to the Friday before the weekend (you could also use plusBusinessDays(1) here if you wanted to set it to the Monday rather than the Friday)duedate2.png

Hope this helps!


Yes, we were thinking implementing something similar if our need was not feasible. This functionality could really help us!

Thank you for your alternative and your help,
