    Yes, I would love to be able to post a form live on a website.  But, not have people be able to complete it until a specific time.  Thus, I'm wondering if that might be a capability in the future?  The use case is that I have a registration period starting at a specific time for registering for classes and I can't have people fill out the form before a certain time.  Instead of me having to manually post the form to the website, I'd like to already have it on the website, and just have it automatically "turn on" and start being able to accept online registrations via the form I provide.  If people try to register and fill out the form before this specified scheduled time, then the form would simply say a customizeable message like:  "Sorry!  Registration is not open yet.  Please try again at xyz PM time."

    Thanks!

    Thank you for detailed explanation. I've answered this question at the following link:

    In addition to that you can change the Warning Message as you see below:

     

    However, I think you want to disable your form automatically everyday. I am sorry to say that you need to disable your form manually and enable it again  at desired time.

    Please, check this guide below for more information:
