    Sorry but we do not have such feature. However, we do have submissions limits an expiration date limit for a form but I don't think this may help. What I have in mind is to enable "Unique Submissions" with your form so user's will be able to submit 1 entry per IP. Later on, after 6 months you have to delete all your form submissions (of course you have to back up your submissions data before deletion) so users will be able to submit again. Check this guide on how to enable Strick Check Unique Submissions to your form. What does Unique Submission Mean?

    Feel free to let us know if you have further questions. Thanks!
