    I understand that you want to restrict your users to fill the form before a specific date. This can be achieved by hiding the fields based on a condition set on a date field to the date that you need.

    Please see the demo JotForm below to see how it works.

    Also, you can set an expiration date to the form in order to restrict your users to submit the form after the expiry date. Please refer to the following guide that can assist you with this :

    Thanks!
