Confiforms date validation with another date field

I have a wierd behavior in my form  (CONFIFORMS)

I am working with a field that represents the date of the request (filled automatically to today), requestdate.

I have another field which is an interval date to reservation purposes. 

I want to validate that the interval starts after the requestdate. 

In my Confiforms Rules for field Definition I set a validation rule like this:

- FIeld name: theinterval

- Condition: requestdate:>interval.startDate

When we create the entry the validation rule does not work, whereas when I edit the entry it correctly detects the incorrect date.

What am I missing?

You should reference the value, not the "text" for "interval.startDate", as you check the field agains the value in the conditions... 

Meaning that the correct one would be


I did what you suggested and set a point '.' in the Validation rule.


It worked !! Thank you so much
