    I created this form-- https://form.jotform.com/70508642566157 -- and book myself an appointment at 12 when I would be taking my lunch, and then tried booking another session as someone else at the same time just to make sure it wouldn't let me go that... But it did let me do that unfortunately.

    And also, I don't receive any email notifications when people sign up as the creator of the form. I obviously did something wrong :/ Help?

    I have inspected your form and you are using  DateTime field. It is not possible to prevent that same date and time is selected by multiple users when using this field. 

    This can only be achieved with widgets like:

    Appointment Slots

    Ticket Purchases

    Gift Registry

    You will have to set date/time and available slots to one. This way only one user will be able to select one option.

    I have moved your issue to separate thread and we will provide you an answer there shortly.
