    How to set an expiration date for a form?

    Asked by lotus8888 on July 30, 2011 at 07:34 AM

    hello Everyone,

    Would anyone know if we can set an auto expiration date for a form?  I have selected the "auto responder" email notification with the "edit-link" option.  I think I saw the option to disable a form but was hoping there would be an option to set an expiration date so it prevents a user from making changes to their submission after the deadline has passed?

    Hi Mike,

    At this time, JotForm does not have the ability to assign an expiration date. You also cannot set the mximum number of submissions per form. This feature is currently in our to do list for further consideration.

    For now, kindly disable the form manually once it becomes expired.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Feature has been implemented so this is possible anymore. To set and Expiration Date please follow the steps below:

    1. Click Setup and & Embed

    2. Click Preferences

    3. Go to Advance Settings

    4. Set and Expired Date using this Format (yyyy-mm-dd) e.g. 2011-12-1

    If form reaches full capacity, the form is disabled automatically.

    Let us know if you have further questions with regards to this. Thanks.

    It appears that the option to enable this on the form is missing, I have created a ticket for our developers to look into this issue.

    We will keep you posted on whatever updates we have on this by posting it here on the forum.

    Sorry for whatever inconvenience this may have caused.

    Currently, we have disabled this feature because of server issue. Please stay tuned for updates on this feature. We will just update this thread when the said feature is ready for used.

    Thank you for understanding and have a great day!

    How would I set my form to expire UK Time? I would like it to expire midnight 31 October 1 am. So far I get that I'd enter 2014-8-31  Do I still enter 1:00 at the end for UK GTM? 

    Thank you.
