Forms not updating quickly after changes made

    Hello! I see some posts about this from 2012 regarding embedded forms. I've noticed in the last few weeks that changes I make to forms show up in the form builder, but may not show up on the Live Preview for a few hours. Has there been a change to JotForm? I've seen this happen to several forms for everything from radio buttons to conditional fields to third-party widgets.

    I did some tests but I was not able to replicate mentioned issue. All changes that I made inside of Form Builder are shown on my live form, there is no delay.

    I have inspected form that you provided and your live form looks exactly the same as your form inside of Form Builder.

    Are changes not saved on your standalone form or on your embedded form? If this issue is related to your embedded form, please provide us URL of your webpage. 

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hello! I see that it's working now. I've had the issue at least twice in the most recent weeks. When I see it again, I'll comment then. Thank you.

    Thank you for updating us. It might be a cache issue or a delay in the replication process in our servers. However, everything seems to be good in our end and we have not received similar reports the first time this was reported. But rest assure that we're in constant monitor here. If you encounter the problem again, please do let us know.
