    How to cut-off registration after 50 submissions?

    Asked by Artie on January 30, 2017 at 10:27 AM

    I have a student registration form where users can sign-up for several classes throughout the year.  Each class can accommodate 50 students.  How do I set a cap to 50 entries for each class and auto notify the user that the class is closed? 

     

    Thanks!

    Hello Artie,

    If you want to disable the whole form when it reaches 50 submissions, then you can do that by limiting number of submissions allowed and to do that please follow: https://www.jotform.com/help/137-How-to-limit-submissions-in-a-form

    Otherwise, you can add one of our widgets that show remaining items, maybe one of these: https://widgets.jotform.com/search/items

    If you need any assistance in achieving that, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    Thanks.  I do not want to disable the entire form.  Only the classes that receive 50 submissions.

    Thank you for additional clarification.

    Then you could achieve that by using one of our conditions.

    For example, if you use our Inventory widget you can set how many classes are available and how many they can take:

    And when your classes are out (when all 50 of them are taken) then they are not available anymore:

    I assume that that should work for you.

    If you have any further assistance please let us know.

    Thank you!
