Can’t publish your typeform? Is it tagged as “Trial”? Not sure why this is happening or what to do?
We created Trial to give you the opportunity to test paid features for free. All typeforms under a Free plan will be tagged as “Trial” and set to closed by default.
Don’t worry, though, it’s pretty easy to detect and remove these paid features and make your typeform public.
Why is my typeform tagged Trial?
A Typeform will be tagged as Trial:
- If it has more than ten questions on a Free plan.
- If it is using paid features not included in your plan.
Depending on your plan, a typeform using the following features may be tagged as Trial:
If you have a typeform that is tagged as “Trial” it means the form has at least one of the above paid features enabled.
To be able to switch your typeform to Public mode, you’ll have to remove the “Trial” tag. And to be able to do that, you’ll have to make sure you disabled every paid feature in your typeform.
How do I detect and remove paid features?
If you’re not sure which paid feature(s) are enabled in your typeform, just click the Publish button at the top-left of the screen. You’ll see the list of paid features enabled in your typeform:
You can quickly check the questions in your typeform that have one or more paid features by looking for the little ‘Trial’ icons in the Editor panel.
You need to remove all paid features, or all questions that take you above the 10 question limit if you want to share your typeform without upgrading your account.
Once you’ve removed all paid features, you have to make your typeform public again. To do this, click the Publish button. It will turn grey, and your typeform is now shareable again:
Below we explain how to detect if certain paid features are present in your typeform and how to remove them.
Logic and calculations
Logic is a paid feature on some accounts that you’ll have to remove from your typeform to publish it.

You can also choose to remove all additional Endings from your typeform, as this will also remove the Logic set for Outcome quiz:

Remove Typeform branding
Remove Typeform branding is a Premium feature, and you’ll have to disable it to publish your typeform if you’re on a different plan.
Typeform branding is on by default:
