Default start date of calendar


New member
Hi All,

New to this forum.

I have an issue with a calendar which I need to start at a future date (beginning of 2024). I have the following code and want to know how to adjust it to make the calendar display start at 01 Jan 2024 for the user to select, rather than have to scroll through from today's date. I think this should be relatively straight forward - I just don't know how - if anyone can help I'd be most grateful.

<input type="text" class="hasDatepicker" id="start_date" name="start_date" value="" placeholder="Start hire" readonly="readonly">
