    How do I set a disabled form to be enabled at a specific date/time?

    I've seen the tutorial to disable a form at a set date/time or submission limit. But I have a form that's currently disabled that I'd like to enable/open at a specific date/time instead. Is that possible?

    Although we don't have an innate feature/option to achieve this, using Conditions might be a possible workaround. All we need from you is a clear description of how you want this to happen.

    As a quick example, here's a form https://jotform.com/62658586364975 that is only available if you view it between 11AM and 9PM daily.

    If you try viewing that form within those hours, you will see the form. If you view it outside of those hours, you will see a message instead like so:

    For your reference, this was how the condition was setup on that form:

    If you want to see how it was setup, feel free to clone that form, here's how.

    Going back, just give us a clear description of how you want this to happen so we can offer you the proper workaround. Hoping to hear from you soon.
