Freeze a form for editing after a certain time period

    I am creating a form with questions and answers spaces that I would like to save and lock for editing after a certain period of time (say 45 minutes).  Is there a way to do this?  I'm not sure if I would like the clock to start ticking when the first question is answered but I would be okay if it had to start ticking when the form was opened to edit.

    Are these brand new records being added? or are the being edited?

    If you want to keep track on time that the form is open, you will need to use what most people call the Image On Load (IOL) with some custom code.

    Most likely you will need to hire somebody to implement the solution... Unless Dan D. has an easy code that will do what you want.

    Best of luck,

    Some variant of the four use cases in the demo in the following post should meet your needs:

    Thanks Dan, Module 3 is very close to what I need.  I did however create a Submit & Redirect button so that when I send the page out using the EOTI role with the &ifv they get redirected to a splash page.  Is there an easy way I can replace the #saveButton with my Submit and Redirect button?
