    Need to disable auto-save in v4

    Asked by apasyeva on April 20, 2017 at 12:14 AM


    auto-saving of form takes up my time. I have to do a lot of short operation (duplicate conditions) and I lose my time when I wait for auto-saving. Please, help me to disable it.

    I'm afraid to say that it is not possible to disable the Autosave in JotForm builder V4. The autosave feature allows the form to automatically save after any changes were made so it should not takes up much of your time. Moreover, you have also an option to revert back to the previous state of your form if you have made wrong changes on your form. How to View Form Revision History

    Hello apasyeva,

    As explained by my colleague, it is currently not possible to disable auto-save function in version 4 of editor. I am creating a feature request ticket and forwarding to our backend team. Please note that creating a feature request ticket will not ensure that the feature will be implemented. It completely depends upon the feasibility and priority of our backend team but we will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    For now, I would suggest you to please switch to version 3 which will allow you to disable auto-save feature. Please check the screenshot below how to switch to older version 3: 


    Thank you!
