    I have been using jotform to gather registrations for conference attendees. The closing date I gave has long passed so I would like to close the form to new registrations. If I do this will I still be able to edit entries if there are any changes and download data?

    Thanks for your help.

    There is an option to disable a form, here is how: How-to-Enable-Disable-a-Form

    But, in this case you will see a 'disabled' warning when attempting to edit submissions. 

    I can suggest to apply some conditional logic to disable a form and to be able editing existing submissions.

    Basically, you could add a text message on your form using TEXT element, it should say that registration is over. Also, you'd need a Get From Page URL widget to know the URL of a page, where the form is loaded:


    Then, the following conditional statement would hide all form fields and show your custom warning unless the submissions is being edited through Submissions page:
