How to Enable/Disable a Form

Last Update: July 16, 2017

What's so important about changing the status of your forms? Take this example - A client may want you to start a particular form on December 16th for use with a Christmas sale and, after the sale, pause until next year. Using this method, you’ll be able to disable and enable forms whenever you need to.

Video Tutorial:

There are two ways to change the status of a form.

METHOD 1

Go to the MY FORMS page, click the form you intend to disable/enable, click MORE, then change the form's status by clicking either ENABLE or DISABLE.

METHOD 2

On your Form Builder, click SETTINGS at the top, FORM SETTINGS on the left, then set the FORM STATUS option to either ENABLED or DISABLED.

If I disable my form (for new submissions) can my client still Edit Form if they have the link?

It would be great to have an option to enable on a specific date, in order to allow applications or submissions during a specific time period. Then I wouldn't have to enable the form in the middle of the night!

I have created a form. I have the link, but how do I make the form editable for submission. If I put my link on my website, how can I make it so that when clients click on it, they can edit the form and submit it to me

Can I schedule the enabling? It is my job to start the form on time, but I won't be at my computer.
