    Is there a way to limit the number of responses, AND by date of an option in a question?

    Asked by sueryan on January 04, 2017 at 04:48 PM

    I have a number of sessions to sign up for, so they are listed by a date name: February 6, February 7, etc. I can set the limit to 23 people per session, but is there anyway to not let people select a date that has passed by the time they have submitted the form whether or not the limit has not been met. For example, I don't want some selecting February 6 on February 20 even though it says there are still 15 openings in that session.

    Thanks for any advise you can give me.

    I think there's a workaround but it would require breaking each dates selection individually. Meaning, separate dates into each widgets.

    Example:

    Widget 1 contains Feb 6

    Widget 2 contains Feb 7

    Then use a date field (with current time enabled) to create a date condition. 

    Example: If date = 2017-02-20, hide February 6 field.

    Is this something you'd consider?
