Unpublish form

I would like to see the option to unpublish a form and or to set a limit to the submissions. For example I would like to set a limit of 100 submissions due to a webinar subscription.

Edit: Day 1352 – Still no option to unpublish a form or cap webinar sign-ups. We're considering switching to smoke signals for faster results! 😂


Come on, tech wizards, let's make this happen before we're sending messages via carrier pigeons!

It is possible to do so !! But there is a work-around!


In order to do so, you need to create the form inside a CTA.

The CTA (sticky-banner, pop-up box, slide-in, embedded, etc) can be unpublish at anytime.


That way, you will be able to unpublish and keep the data.


Let me know if its working for you too!






Can you please share a video showing the steps to do it?

Thanks much!

Hi folks,

I’m Ian, the Product Manager for HubSpot’s Forms tool.


Thank you all for taking the time to submit, upvote, and comment on this Idea. I'm happy to report that this Idea is now In Planning! This means that our engineers are actively building this feature.


The product development process is always filled with unexpected bumps and hurdles, so I can't give a timeline, but I am confident in saying we'll deliver this feature as soon as possible.


All updates will be relayed on this thread, so stay tuned!

This is a sorely needed feature -- any updates on when this will be available?!


Unbelievable that this was not an MVP feature.

I reached out to support recently about unpublishing/archiving some old forms and this still isn't an available feature?! I obviously don't want to delete them because there are old submissions, but it's ridiculous to have them in a list of published forms, and then to need to filter them out of any reporting. Come on, HubSpot. This should be an easy one.

I agree. Maybe it will happen before the cost increases.

@IMcDonald is there any update on timing please? Running into needing this today


I would love to be able to add a message to the form that says something like 'This form is no longer taking new submissions.' Sometimes, when we manage a limited-time offer or registration and we email our database about it, we get submissions even after the offer is over.


Of course, I can use the thank-you message to let people know, but by that time they put in the effort to submit the form, so it's not a fantastic UX for them.
