    How to set a form to disable at a date and time.

    Asked by BrightonPAC on May 17, 2017 at 09:38 AM

    Hi - I'm trying to set a form to disable at a date and time. I (and all of my users) live in Australia (Adelaide). Do I need to calculate the time to be US Eastern Standard Time, or can it be the time zone that my account settings are set to? I've tried testing this tonight but it still appears to be available.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    The time is US Eastern Standard Time (server time, not your computer time), so you will have to calculate the time.

    Also time must be entered at least 5 hours before the expiration time. 

    This is mentioned inside of the guide on which you posted your comment.

    I have also checked your forms and I saw that your form Brighton Sunday Market is disabled. 

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi - thanks for getting back to me. Just to clarify...

    If I want the form to close at 17:00 - I need to set the close time to 12:00, or I need to save my settings by 12:00?

    Cheers.

    If you want the form to close at 17:00 you need to save the settings at least 5 hours earlier, before 12:00. 

    Hope this will help.
