    The short answer is - No, your own Form Views wouldn't be counted towards your Form Views Limit. Here's a snippet from the guide I'm linking below:

    Will views from Preview count as form views?

    No. The Preview will not be counted against your form views. It will also not count it if the form is viewed by yourself while you are logged in - even if the form is embedded on your website.

    This means that form views only count if someone else views the form. The same applies if you are not logged into the system while checking it.

    There's a chance you viewed your form while you're not logged in to your JotForm account (e.g. on a different device, browser, etc.) For as long as you're viewing your form while you're logged in to JotForm, that wouldn't be counted towards your limit.

    Also, all monthly limits, that includes the monthly Form Views limit, reset back to zero on the 1st day of each month, which is just around the corner. So, there's nothing to worry about. 😊
