The proper term is "recorded". You can have your will recorded in the public records if you want. However, if there needs to be a probate filed it will be recorded then. You want to review your will every 5 years or so, and I generally advise clients not to have their wills recorded until it is necessary. A will does not have to be recorded unless and until there is a probate case.

You use to be able to record wills prior to your death in Florida but this is no longer permitted.
