How to Enable or Disable a Form

February 12, 2024

What’s so important about changing the status of your forms? Consider this example – a client may want you to start a particular form on December 16th to use for a Christmas sale and, after the sale, pause the form until next year. Using the following methods, you can disable and enable forms whenever necessary.

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

Method 1: My Forms

This method is simple and direct, but it disables the form instantly. If you wish to set a condition, such as disabling the form on a specific date/time, proceed to the second method.

  1. In your My Forms page, select the form you intend to enable or disable.
  2. Click More on the far right side of the selected form.
  3. Under the Form column, click Disable or Enable option.

Method 2: Form Settings

If you are in the Form Builder, you can enable/disable the form through the Form Settings. Here’s how you can do that:

  1. In the Form Builder, go to the Settings tab.
  2. Under the Form Settings, click the Form Status option.

  1. Select Disabled from the dropdown. As mentioned above, you can also select the options to disable the form on a specific date or by submission limit.
  2. Click the Save button, and your form should now be disabled.
