    Form still available after set Expiration Date

    Asked by Leslye on June 24, 2014 at 12:21 PM

    Hello, friends.

     

    I'm having this recurrent problem with the expiration date in my forms. For some unknown reason, the forms keep being available after the date i set previously expired. And because of that, clients are able to send their forms out of schedule. I want to know if i'm setting the date format wrong or if it's a problem with the form in some sort of way.

     

    Thank you very much

    Hi, I was checking your last form edit, assuming this is the one you are talking about, this is the message that is displayed when trying to load the form: 

    I can see there are two submissions on the 20th, did you happen to embed this form in your website? If yes, please share the URL of the webpage where the form is embedded, maybe there is a conflict between codes that made this glitch happened.

    Hello, no i didn't embed the link in my website, and I had to manually disable the last three forms when i realize they were still open. I sent the link in a gmail message to all my contacts though.

    Let me please inform you, that the Expiration Date should be set in the following format:

    yyyy-mm-dd 24hrFormatTime

    Example:

    2014-06-24 21:30 

    And the time is based on the server time (New York Timezone).

    I will also submit a ticket to our technicians to make sure that the Expiration Date option is working as supposed.

    Thank you.
