I've recently made a digital marketing email request form so my team can better manage the email requests we get from various parts of our organization. Ideally, we would like for requesters to only be able to choose an email send date that is at least a month away from the date they are submitting the form. Is there any way to restrict requesters from picking a date that is less than 4 weeks from the date of their form fill in Microsoft Forms? 

 

Branching off of that if my above question is possible - would it be possible to to add a "Rush Request" field requiring justification/reason that appears if a requester does choose an email send date that is less than 4 weeks from the date of their form fill?

@J_Coob no in Microsoft Forms you can't prevent a user entering a date less than 4 weeks from what will be the send date, you would need to use a Customised PowerApps form with SharePoint instead. That could either display a message if the date was less 4 weeks from today, or it could have a text field become visible under this circumstance for the rush request justification. Forms can't do this.
