Submittable lets you manually turn categories on and off, making them visible or invisible to submitters.
1. In the Categories tab of the main navigation bar, click the title of the category you want to update.
2. Locate the Live check box at the bottom of the General Settings tab. Check or uncheck this box to turn the category on or off.
Note: If you turn off all your categories, you're turning off the submissions manager. So if you'd like to stop receiving all submissions, just turn off all the categories.
3. To schedule a submission category to automatically turn on and off on a certain date, enter a date in the Starts On and Expires On fields in the General Settings tab.
