    Please make a publish button so I'm not working on the live form

    Asked by SRWproducts on April 13, 2016 at 12:18 PM

    I am trying to edit my form but people are filling it out as I am editing. If I disable it, I can't preview it. I wish this worked more like a website when your changes are saved as you go, but then you publish it when done to make it live.

    Unfortunately this is not possible to achieve. Embedded form will be updated right away once you edit your form inside of form builder, unless you are using full source code of your form. If you are using full source code changes you made on your form will not be shown on your website. Once changes are made you will need to re-embed your form with new source code. 

    You can also clone your form, made changes on your cloned form and then embed your cloned form instead of original form. Inside of this guide you can find how to clone your form:
