    We do not have such feature available yet, but as a workaround you may do the following: 

    1. Add a date field to your form and configure it to have the current date, set the field as hidden as well:

    2. Then add some section collapse, one will have a text message using the "Text" element indicating the form is not available and the other one will have the form's content.

    3. Configure both collapse tools like the image below:

    4. The last step is to set up conditions to show each section based on the date, here is an example:

    I hope this helps.
