    (feature request)Time counter

    Asked by emunidade on October 24, 2013 at 09:46 AM



    I am a trainer and sometimes I need to send by email some worksheets to my trainees.

    I'd like to send a form by email, with some questions, but this form should be time counter based. I mean: as soon as the trainee opens the form the counter starts running. And the form would be submited manually by the trainee, or automatically if the counter reaches a specific time. What happens firts would occur.

    Is this possible to do with jotform? If so, how can this be done?

    Thank you.

    I'm afraid that there is no such function available at the moment, it is not possible to have a countdown timer in order to limit the time of the filling form process.

    I'm going to forward your request to our feature request list, I cannot commit if this function will be implemented or not but you can be sure that our development team will read this messagge.
