    Receiving this error message when trying to save a form: Form data cannot be decoded

    Asked by eileenjst on November 28, 2011 at 02:37 PM

    Besides this message, on some forms, I also receive a message that the system is currently experiencing a large volume and is unavailable.

    I don't know if they are related instances.


    I have several forms, and those I've tried all give me the same error message when I try to save them.

    I just read about someone on the forum that received an email about wishbox, clicked on a link in the email and then weren't able to access their accoutn because they got the 'large volume' error.


    I did the same thing in the wishbox email. Maybe that's my problem. Can you fix my account?
