    Hi again @messiahmoravianpreschool!

    Currently, it is only possible to disable a form on a certain date using Jotform's settings. However, there is a workaround you can follow to display your form in full on a particular day. Until then the form will display a custom message, informing viewers that the form will go live on a certain day in the future.

    Please follow this guide to achieve this functionality: Enable-or-Disable-a-Form-Based-on-Time-Using-Conditions and just use the Date Picker field instead of the Time field.

    Basically, you would have to add a Date Picker field and set the Default Date to Current (by going to field's Properties>Options tab). After that, set the field to Hidden. After that, please follow the guide to create the conditions which will hide all of the fields on the form as well as the Submit button, and display the message to the potential respondents instead.

    Please let us know if you have any questions and we would be more than happy to help you every step of the way!
