    Helo,

    I love using JotForm - it's propably the easiest form builder that we've ever used in our company. The problem is that because it's so easy more and more people think that it can do anything ;-). And today we have problem.

     

    I have to situations when some option of field should not be avaible after a number of submission. For example:

     

    There is a question - What would you like to do on our reunion?

    1. Play football (max number: 30 person)

    2. Play voleyball (max number: 20 person)

    3. Play whatever (unlimited)

     

    and now We would like to hide or disable Play footbal option after 30 submission with this option active. Simiralry we would like to hide or disable option play voleyball after 20 person so in the end only play whatever option should stay.

     

    Does anybody have any idea? :-)

     

    I added a link to form but i think that because it's in Polish it won't be very useful :-(

     We used to have a feature to limit submissions . Unfortunately, we don't have such feature anymore, due to some code conflicts. However even if the developers set this feature back, it will not be based on conditions, like in your case, just the total count.

    Best regards

    Are there any plans to implement something like this in future?

    There are plans to implement the submissions limit in the feature, but like I said, that won't based upon conditions it would be based on the numbers of submissions a form can recieve in total

     

    Best regards

    Just to add to what my colleague has stated, I doubt very much that the specific functionality in question will become a reality anytime soon. One of the criteria for implementation of a feature is the number of users requesting it and although I agree that it would be nice to have such a feature, I doubt that it has been or will be requested by enough users for our developers to actively pursue it, unless it's very easy to configure.

    Nevertheless, it's good to know that people think our product can do anything!

    OK, thanks a lot for Your answers :). I hope that more users will ask for something like this and once upon a time I will wake up and see this new function working ;-).

    this functionality of being able to hide options on a list based on a total # of submissions would be super helpful to me as well.
