    Is there a way to lock forms to prevent changes or accidental deletion?

    Asked by postmeit on September 17, 2013 at 05:40 PM

    Is there any way to lock forms that are in production to stop any accidental changes?


    If not it would be a really useful feature.


    Thanks. Will

    About preventing forms of being accidentally deleted, once you delete a form will remain in the "Trash" folder until you delete it from the trash folder too.

    In the case of accidental edition, the JotForm builder doesn't have a way of "lock" the form fields or the form content, but a possible workaround could be by making a backup of your form by cloning and storing in a different folder.

    Hope it helps
