Hi @Anonymous ,

Firstly the way to "lock out" a form would be to change its Mode - so looking at the circumstances you have described.

You would have to define what constitutes "updated" - if you mean a something changed during the month, the best way would be to use the Modified property of the record. The end of the month is a formula as below.

Firstly, put a custom card on the form and Insert two labels. Call one TodayMonth with the formula

Month(Today())

Call the other ModDate with this

Month(Modified)

So putting it all together in the DisplayMode of the form

If(
    TodayMonth = ModDate || 
    Today() = DateAdd(
        DateAdd(
            Date(
                Year(Today()),
                Month(Today()),
                1
            ),
            1,
            Months
        ),
        -1,
        Days
    ),
    FormMode.View,
    FormMode.Edit
)
