Online Form: Enable on date

    Asked on June 02, 2021 at 10:09 AM

    I use the Disable On Date all the time and I love that I can set that and know the form will close on a specific date and time. This is an extremely valuable tool.

    An equally needed tool is an Enable On Date. We build forms in advance, do lots of testing to be sure when that form is needed - it is working correctly.

    Most of our forms can go live as soon as it is done being built. However, some forms open on a specific date giving time for all involved to be notified - giving equal access (consider a sign up for for an event with limited attendance - all need equal opportunity to the form).

    So that means I have to be at my computer at the very minute the form must go live. That might not be convenient if I am traveling. Or it opens at midnight PT and now I have to be up at 2am CT to open the form.

    Please consider an Enable On Date so it can be set in advance.

    Thank you!

    Howdy ISCAForms,

    I understand that you would like to have the option to enable a Form at a specific date and time. At this time I have created a request for our developers to consider implementing this feature. Please understand that I am unable to provide an ETA for when this feature might be implemented. However, you should be notified on this thread once there is an update.

    I would like to point out that this is almost possible at the moment. While it isn't a simple option to enable like the "Disable on date" feature, we can use Conditional Logic, and a Paragraph field to show our own message until after the specified date. However, this method will not allow us to compare the time & date, only the date.

    I have created a demo form here. Please clone the form to your account to investigate the settings and conditions that I have used.

    Please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with!
