    I will raise this request to our developers as well, because if more users are requesting same feature it has a higher chances that it will be implemented. However, we can not give you exact time frame when and if this will be implemented. 

    If there are any updates we will inform you via this thread.

    @rdrhda

    There's a workaround for this:

    1. Add a Date Time field to the form:


    2.
    Set its Default Date to Current:


    3.
    Hide it from view:


    4.
     Use a Text field to add a note about when the form would be available:


    5.
    Add a Form Collapse and set its Status to Open and its Visibility to Hidden as explained in this guide

    6. Add all of the other form fields under the form collapse

    7. Create a condition to show the form collapse only if the date is after whatever you specify. It should be similar to the following:


    Here's a demo form which uses the above workaround. Please feel free to clone it. If you need further help with this please inform us.

    Thanks

    Actually, the condition should be configured to also hide the notice:

    Sorry - that does not work  we asked for enablement at a set Date and TIME. Time is not catered for with this reply.

    Hi there,

    Yes, you are right the method which has mentioned by my colleague Abajan can only work with Date not the Time. Unfortunately, we don't have this feature; but the tickets have already opened for this one, so our developers will be on that issue.

    However, you can disable your form on stated date and time by following the steps below:

    When there is an update about this feature, you will be informed on this thread. For further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

     

    Thanks.
