    How long does the HIPAA compliance migration take?

    We received the BAA via email after we filled out the form and it said to close

    the window because it was migrating. It's been about 6 hours now and when I look at

    our account it shows no evidence that we started the HIPAA compliance process.

    I have been sent this guide a few times. I have received the BAA 3 times. When it starts the form migration, red words flash once on the bottom saying something went wrong and then the form migration form stays open indefinitely. What are the next steps? We want to use this for COVID appt scheduling and this is our last time to go live.

    Hopefully this image comes through. I did clear the browser's cache. I tried again and got the same error. It disappears super quickly before I can click on it. 1607710131_5fd3b5b326779_20201211_120534

    Hello @Miranda_Noll,

    You shouldn't be able to upgrade to HIPAA because the "Encryption" option has been enabled on your account. Normally, you should have been seen an error message about the encryption option before upgrading HIPAA but you couldn't see this message because of a problem on our side.

    I apologize for the inconvenience. You can start HIPAA migration after disabling this option from the account page. Please disable the "Encryption" option on the account page (https://www.jotform.com/myaccount). Check the following screenshot for finding this option.


    If you need further help, please let us know.
