    How to activate the form on a specific date?

    Asked by bhds on April 20, 2015 at 08:50 AM

    One of the preferences that one can set for a form is an Expiration Date, after which submissions won't be accepted.

    Is there any way of setting an Activation Date, i.e. a date before which submissions can be made?  We have a form that we don't to become active before 8pm on a particular date.  The only way we can think of doing this is to inactivate the form, then log in to our JotForm account at 8pm on the date in question and set the form to active.  This relies on someone being available to do so at that time, so an automated way of achieving this would be preferable.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, this feature is not available currently built-in. However, you can take an advantage of conditions wizard by adding Date and Time fields to your JotForm to show or hide the form fields. 

    Please refer to the following thread that can help you with creating the required conditions.
