Form Schedule Settings

When you turn on the Enable toggle, you will see the schedule settings. If you won’t set the From and To Date, the form will work as usual.

From Date. Here you can set the date, from which the form will be available for clients to fill and submit. Before the date you’ve set, the visitors will see the text you write in the Pending Message text area. If you will set the From Date but won’t set the To Date, the form will become available at the set date and will be always visible to users afterward;

To Date. This is a feature to set the date after which the form will be no longer available to the users. After the date you set, they will see the text you type into the Expired Message text area. If you set only the To Date and won’t set the From Date, the form will be available for the users from the moment of creation and until the date you defined;

Pending Message. The text you write here will be shown to the users instead of the form until the date you set in the From Date field;

Expired Message. Type the text here and the users will see it instead of the form after the date you defined in the To Date field.

Tip: Combine Schedule Forms Addon with Limit Form Responses – this will give you the opportunity to set the open/close date and the form submission limit for the same form. Whichever comes first will close it.
