    Hi,

    Is it possible to enable a form on a specific date? Ideally I would like to create a form, but not allow people to register until a specific date. Is this possible? If not, any work arounds?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Yes, you can do that using the Date Picker field and some conditional logic.

    Full guide and steps: Enable or Disable a Form Based on Time Using Conditions

    Just follow the steps on the guide and use the Date Picker field instead of the Time field since you want to deal with a specific date.

    I also created a sample form for this where the conditions are that if the date is before Nov. 20, 2021, the fields will be hidden and a certain text will appear saying "You cannot register now. Please come back on Nov. 20, 2021". If the date is on Nov. 20 onwards, the form will then display the fields. Below is a screenshot of the conditions I set on the form for your reference.

    Here is the URL of my sample form: https://form.jotform.com/213155709538056

    You are free to clone that form and edit it to your liking if you want.
