    Thank you for contacting us.

    I notice that your form http://www.jotform.com/form/40354661185151 is divided into pages.

    Please help us understand your request:

    1. How is the form automated? What feature would you like to turn off?

    2. Do you have a specific workflow in mind, one that would create a 'guided' form?

    Please let us know.

    When I first created the account... There were two forms under the company name that I put in... one was an automated form and the other was a guided form... I chose the automated form, now I want to change it and choose the guided form, but it looks like you guys only have the automated form available now..

    I'm sorry but as my colleague stated and asked of you what sort of " Automation " are you referring to? There are parts of your form that are automated and well as manually but both are realistically controlled so I'm not exactly sure that we understand which parts you are talking about trying to " Guide "? 

    Can you please tell us more about which form this was and what exactly you are trying to return to guided with the features turned off? I'm having a hard time understanding what you need help so if you could explain this more with further details that would be very much appreciated so that we can assist you better with the necessary corrections.

    My colleague Titus and I discussed your thread more and he thinks that by " Guided " you may mean that there was a form that got deleted from your account perhaps? Is that maybe what you meant since it sounds like you said you had 2 forms beforehand but we currently only found 1 listed. Did you try checking your Trash Can? As long as you haven't purged the trash can and it hasn't been over 30 days then you can easily recover it if it ended up there. You can also even try using the My Forms searchbar to locate it and see if it shows up in your list.
