How to Inform Users That Your Form’s URL Has Been Changed

December 7, 2023

Sometimes you want to change your form completely, URL included, but you already shared your existing form URL with your users. Instead of sending out the new URL, you can leave a message for your users on your old form that the URL has been changed.


Deleting a form field also deletes the associated data. See How to Download Form Submissions for creating back-ups.

To set it up

  1. In the Form Builder, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+A to select all your form fields.
  2. Select Hide at the top to hide the highlighted fields.

  1. Remove your form’s submit button to prevent new entries.

  2. Select the link icon in the editor to insert your new form’s link.
