    A suggestion about allowing test submissions - Submissions Limit

    Asked by ssmediator on July 24, 2013 at 03:34 PM

    I would like to suggest that you implement "live" test Submissions so that they do not count against our Submissions limit.  In other words, allow us to Submit "test" forms from our websites, but do not count them against our Submissions limit.

    So, we would fill in a form & Submit it, but our Submission count remains unchanged.  The conditions could be that we use the word "Test" in the form.  Or, you could have a "Test" checkbox that we would have to use so that you know it is just us testing out our form.

    I know you have the "Test Email" in the Notifications, but that is not a true test because the form is not filled in--so we don't know what it would look like with the form fields filled in.  Also, it is a big help to be able to see how forms behave on our websites; but when we Submit a form via our website, it gets counted against our Submissions count.

    So that is why I am suggesting, a way for us to Submit Live forms for testing purposes that do not count against our Submission count.  Maybe you could have two count types: one the way it is now (for real submissions for our website users) and one for us (for testing them out.); and let us do, say, 15, Tests per month.

    OK, that's my 2-cent suggestion.  Maybe we will see it in an upcoming version of Jotform!
