    Hello @nabelsakha - Although we don't have an innate feature to automatically enable the form at a specific time, there's an option for you to disable it based on specific date/time:

    Related guide: How-to-limit-submissions-in-a-form

    I understand what you're looking for requires the opposite of an Expiry Date/Time (e.g. where the form automatically becomes available at a specific time). On top of that, you need this on a daily basis.

    I'm thinking Conditions will be a good workaround for your requirement so give me some time to come up with an example form that will only be available from 8AM to 9PM everyday.

    I'll keep you posted :)

    All right, here's my test form https://form.jotform.com/62658586364975

    Depending on your local time, the form will only show up if you're viewing it from 8AM to 9PM. To achieve that, here's what I did:

    1. I added a Text Field that will show a message if the form is unavailable

    2. Added a Form Collapse tool that will be used to toggle the form's visibility based on the condition

    3. A Time Field that will be used for the condition. This field will always show the current time

    4. Then this is how the condition was setup

    To better understand and see how it was setup, you may clone the form I created https://form.jotform.com/62658586364975 (here's how).
