Zapier Integration: Add enable and disable form function in Zapier trigger/action

    Asked on April 09, 2019 at 06:41 PM

    Hi, I am trying to automatically enable and disable a form on certain dates each month, as I want to restrict users submitting entries on a competition weekend.

    I tried to do this in Zapier, but it appears not be something that is supported by Jotform (see screengrab below) - is this something that might be available in future?

    Many thanks

    I think we already had that feature. It's called Submission Limits. You can now limit your submissions or disable a form on a specific date/time.

    Here's a guide for that: How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form

    Hi, Yes I've seen that but I need to be able to automate it rather than having to keep re-enabling it manually.
    Basically, every two weeks, I need to disable the form on a Wednesday at midnight, then re-enable it on Monday morning. Then disable it again 2 weeks later etc. Thi means that I currently have to keep manually re-enabling the form on a Monday and changing the date to next disable it.
    I'd like to be able to set all dates to disable/reenable in advance.
    I know I can do this with Zapier, if Jotform allowed the enable/disable form function as an action/trigger on the zapier integration.

    I am sending the thread as a feature request to our backend team for evaluation. We cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented or cannot provide any time frame for implementation at the moment. However, once we have any information in this regard, you'll be posted here.

    Thank you!
