    I would like to close my form soon, probably next week, so that no more entries can be placed, the event is soon and I have to start organizing the volunteers so I don't want to keep receiving entries. 1) how do I do that? 2) is it possible to have an announcement placed when they click the link that the form is closed and you need to contact me at the email?

    This was a great help to me this year and I am very glad I found it, there are a few things I would love to change but maybe I just couldn't figure it out. I would have love to move some of my fields so they were side by side, but I guess this is an overall issue with online forms.It would just be helpful when printing so it doesn't go on more than one page, I am still a hard copy person that takes the forms to the event.

    Thank you for putting this product out there I have recommended it to others.

    Hi Kim,

    You can disable your form by changing its status.  To do this, open the form in the form builder and click the Setup and Embed tab, then click the Preferences button.  Then simply set the status to be disabled.  I'm afraid that it will just display the following generic message.

    "This form has been disabled by the owner.
    Try contacting the owner of this form."

    However if the form is on a page with your email address then that might solve your problem.

    It is possible to move the fields around as you like, but you would need to  use quite a bit of CSS code.  If you are still interested, have a look at the following link:

    and let me know if you need any help with it.

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Is there anyway to personalise the generic message, when the form has been disabled?

    Thanks
