    If I change a link after sharing the form, will the form link be broken?

    Asked by nicoleleeartistry on August 20, 2015 at 02:32 PM

    I have a form created for clients to book sessions.  I have a drop down menu that gives them time options to choose from.  I thought I would delete the times as bookings are taken, but then I worried that, if I did that...then the link to my form would be broken.  Would that happen?  It would be wonderful if I could edit the form as people book!  Thank you so much!

    No. The form will continue to work and the URL will remain the same. But we do not recommend deleting the options because if you do that, there's a chance that you'll get a problem later in the form submissions page. Such as when you want to edit the submission, the option isn't there anymore prompting you to select another.

    Instead, I would recommend using our widget such as the following to limit the number of submission for a particular timeslot:

    Here's how you can add a widget to your form: http://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form.
