I have a site which is being launched in a phased approach. Phase 1 teaser, phase 2 signup form.
I have auto publishing off because I don’t want builds to go “live” until the right day/time. I was hoping to be able to check the functionality of the Netlify Functions and Forms on the preview links that still happen when I do a deploy (and not a publish), but they don’t seem to register (I do see in the deploy that the functions at least are “seen”, though the new ones are not shown in the UI).
If I make a whole new “site” on Netlify and deploy & publish the same git repo, the functions and forms work.
I’m happy to share links (and passwords to access for testing if necessary) if you can make this thread private or PM me for this info. I can’t share the links publicly.
Can I be sure that when it comes time to publish the Phase 2 of the site, that the Forms and Functions will also be published and will function? Is the test of deploying and publishing a whole new site with the same code base (and verified that they all work on that separate site) a sufficient litmus test? I may have people on the site when Phase 2 launches trying to submit the form and need to be confident that it will function as expected.
