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.

    Is there any way we can personalize the disabled form?

    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.

    In my form "https://www.jotform.com/build/71491586057464", the form status is "Enabled" but in the Form Preview I'm getting an error "Form is disabled"

    Hi there
    It does not ring a bell the distinction between ENABLED or DISABLED.
    Please clarify this distinction.
