A form cannot be made public when:

  • The form has expired
  • An administrator has disabled the form


Publish, share, expire, delete, etc.

Use this page to manage your form.

Options are divided into categories, each explained in the Inline help.

Editing a public form

When you edit a public form's fields, the form is made temporarily unavailable. People will see a 'Come back soon' message.

You may add, edit and delete form fields.

You cannot edit form fields that have already been answered.

The answers that correspond to deleted form fields are themselves not deleted, and can be consulted on the 'Answers' page.

Deleting answers

When you have finished collecting data from the form, there are two good reasons to delete the answers.

  1. Data protection
    Unused copies of your user's data are strongly discouraged.

  2. Disk usage
    You have a limited assigned amount of disk space. Deleting form attachments saves space.
