Enabling / Disabling a Form

If you are looking to pause form submissions and restrict access to your form temporarily, you can choose to disable a form. By default, all your forms will be enabled and respondents can submit entries. Either the form owner or the super admin can enable or disable a form.

When you disable a form, you cannot receive form entries from respondents. The form permalink will redirect to an error page where a custom message will be displayed.

To disable a form,
  1. In the forms listing (home page), hover over the horizontal ellipsis of the desired form as shown.
  2. Click Enable / Disable.


  3. Select the Disable option.
  4. You can customize the Message to display when a respondent tries to access the form.
