It’d be great if there was a way in Baserow to:
- mark a form as “closed”/“not accepting responses”
- show a message to visitors explaining what their next step should be
The suggestion is directly copied from the same feature in Google Forms.
Most forms are for collecting data only for a fixed time. For example, collecting list of emails for people interested in a concert. Once that time is over, I need to make sure that visitors cannot submit new entries.
Deleting the form so that the link becomes 404 is a much worse experience because I may lose potential important contacts. It is also a jarring experience for the incoming visitors.
If I don’t delete the form then visitors may keep on submitting the form. Then I need to keep monitoring the relevant table for any new incoming responses, which is a headache for me.
Therefore, I’d like if I could mark a form as closed and show a reason/explanation for the closure to incoming visitors.
