There is a Validation option as you may see. Do you need to add custom validation to this WooCommerce Checkout Datepicker? Read our WooCommerce Checkout Custom Validation Guide →
Next option, the Appearance. You can set your own CSS class to the field. Style the datepicker however you want!
With the Display On option, you can set where to display the WooCommerce Checkout Datepicker. For example, you can set the plugin to display this field only in the checkout. This way user won't be able to change value of this field in My Account.
The last option: Advanced. You can configure conditional logic in here. I won't cover this topic in this article. If you need conditional logic for your fields, look up our Conditional Logic Guide →
