    how can i make a suvey not secure?

    Asked by BobCT on April 15, 2015 at 09:48 AM

    i have a free account that claims 100 free submissions and 10 SSL submissions each month.

    I have a survey that I sent out and then after 10 replys got a notice that my account was full.

    I don't recall setting anything as a ssl or secure, and now I can't figure out how to change it?

    can anybody help me on how to change it back, and if I do will I have to send out the link again?

    is this Jotforms way of forcing you to upgrade?

    If you sent the link as the secure link, users will be filling out the SSL version of your form.  Same thing for if your form is embedded to a webpage using the secure link.  It will continue to use SSL based submissions until the link is changed.  If you had emailed a link that starts with https://secure.jotform, your users will be submitting a secure form.  There is no way to change the link you sent in the email unfortunately. 

    For example, here is a link to one of my forms that does not use SSL submissions:


    And here is the same form using the secure URL:


    If you have emailed the secure link, you could always clone the form:


    And disable the original:

    Then send out a new link to your survey.

    This is by no means our way of forcing you to upgrade.  We never force users to use the SSL link to their forms.  I reset your SSL submission limits to give a chance to get this sorted without having your forms disabled.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    David, thanks very much, excellent answer and support.

    I must have copied a secure link when I sent out the email.

    I appreciate your help!
