    Is there anyway to block my IP address from counting towards views? along with my free trial, and now the bronze, i've used up almost 1400 views of the 10,000 just in redesigning my site and fixing things up so it looks good with the new form. i think this is a little ridiculous that i'm paying for something for others to use, but right now, i'm eating it up.

    by the end of the weekend, i could be at 5000 of my own views.

    can you reset it or provide an option for me?

    thanks.

    If you need to have a lot of form views for testing out your forms, you can enable the JotForm Footer in your account settings, which will enable you to have unlimited form views. You can read more about it on the following guide:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/355-Form-View-Limits-What-is-it-all-about

    When it comes to counting your form views, they are not counted when you are logged into your JotForm account, as also described on the above linked guide:

    Will views from Preview count as form views?

    No. The Preview will not be counted against your form views. It will also not count it if the form is viewed by yourself while you are logged in - even if the form is embedded on your website.

    This means that form views only count if someone else views the form. The same applies if you are not logged into the system while checking it.

    Please make sure you are logged into your JotForm account when testing out the form, and if you still need more form views than are available under your subscription plan, you may consider either upgrading your subscription plan or enabling he JotForm Footer.

    If you need any further clarifications or assistance, please let us know. Thank you.
