Deactivate form templates

Note: Visit for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information.

To deactivate a form template within a site collection, you must have feature activation permissions on that site collection. It is also possible for administrators of a site collection to deactivate form templates from the site collection administration page.

When you deactivate a form template within a site collection, the corresponding form is no longer available to users. You can quiesce a form template before you deactivate it if you want to allow current sessions to be completed. You can find more information about quiescing a form template in Quiesce a form template.
