    Is there a way to make changes to a form without it auto saving?

    Asked by ColeCommunityChurch on September 05, 2012 at 09:51 PM

    I have several forms that are "live" and if I were to make changes to the form that may be complex and take a lot of time to complete, the auto save feature saves it as I go along and so the updates will be live but not complete and could cause problems with the form that is live. For instance if I want to make a change to one of my fields on the form, I change that field and the auto save feature saves it and the form that is live will now have that change even though I haven't added other fields that support the change I made to the field I changed. Can the auto save feature be disabled so that I can publish my form only when the form is completed and all the kinks worked out?

    Thank you.

    Yes, you can disable autosave function by right clicking on the white part of your form area and select disable autosave. So later on you can manually SAVE your form when you're done. Check this screen:
