    Do you offer a timer function on your forms?

    Asked by Erica  on March 12, 2015 at 10:17 AM

    I was wondering if you offer a timer option with your form builder. We would like to be able to create a form and give applicants a set time limit to complete the form. Is this something you offer?

    I take it that you would like to block users from your form when a specified time runs out? I believe our Global Countdown widget can be used to fulfill you desired result. 

    Here is a test form that I have created with this widget:
    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50685547079972? 

    It will allow you to automatically submit the form or block the form when the time runs out. With my test form, I set it to block the form when the time runs out. You can test this widget to see if it will work for you.
