User cannot set a default date to show in the date picker widget for appointment booking.
The date is always defaulted to today's date or week event though the lead time was set to more than one week
The lead time can be set in sn_apptmnt_booking_service_config
This is the expected behaviour
The available bookable windows is [today + Lead time, today + Future bookable max days], but the calendar will always display current week's slots when it's first opened
You can create a custom widget or raise an Idea in the Idea Management Portal for enhancement of this functionality
