    Asked on June 17, 2012 at 07:43 AM

    I have to make a form for a inscription of a workshop. Only 15 people can enter. Other people get on the waiting list.

    1) Is it possible that the first 15 people recieve the succes mail, the next get a mail saying they're on a waiting list?

    2) I also need a field tot subscribe to a mailchimp list but only add people whem they click to subscribe.

    Can someone help? I greatly appreciate your help.

    Hi,

    1) Is it possible that the first 15 people recieve the succes mail, the next get a mail saying they're on a waiting list?

    Unfortunately, the 'submission limit' feature on the form is not available. That could have been the ideal functionality to your requirement. 

    The most that I can suggest is to manually see to the submissions and make the adjustment as soon as you get the 15th submission

    One way to easily monitor it manually is to add a unique id number field on the form that increments for each submission done. If you create a notification email of the form, you can place the {unique id#} on the 'subject' of the email so that you can easily see on the new messages what number of submission it was already.

    2) I also need a field tot subscribe to a mailchimp list but only add people whem they click to subscribe

    You can create a separate form for the mailchimp subscription. This form is integrated to mailchimp. On the 1st form(the one with 'subscribe' link) just create a link that will direct the users to the form with a mailchimp integration.

     

    Hope this help in giving you idea on your form requirement. Inform us if you have further inquiry.

    I will try also to create this kind of form as a sample.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Jonathan, I wil have forms for 15 workshops and can't manually check for the number of subscribers.
    Am I the only one? Every form event must have some kind of limit?
    When will this feature be again available? Why was it deleted?

    Hi,

    I can understand the difficulty if done manually. However, for now, what I suggested was the most I can think of. Let us try to wait and see if my colleagues can offer another alternative resolution later on.

    And you are right, this is not the first form that require such limits on the kind of event form.

    Some have found way by re-designing the form (i.e. like what I suggested earlier was an example).

    But to my knowledge, this is achievable if you can use the full source code of the form and use a server-side scripting programming language like PHP or Javascript to create the plugin function that can count the submission numbers and automate the disablity of the form if the condition/logic is satisfied.

    I am aware that there are greater clamor among the users to restore the feature back. It was actually on the hands of our dev team already. It will be only a matter of time when the team will provide/post updates on its status.

    It was 'remove' due to functionality conflict with the form that can be consider as a 'show stopper' for the form, meaning it was a major issue.

    FYI

    Thanks.

    Good evening,
    Thanks for the reply. I would indeed really appreciate if such a function, direct or indirect would be restored.
    If you can give an alternative email response from a specific number of submissions that would be a great help also.
    Then I wouldn't need a limit who shuts down the form. This would be even better.
    So I can say to the people they are on a waiting list.
    Can you please comment if this would be a possibility?
    Thanks,
    Korneel

    Hi Korneel,

    Are you referring to the guide I just provided? Currently, the inability to automatically set the form submission 'limit' even on differenct email responses still applies.

    Please clarify how do you meant to go about giving an alternative email response to 'specific' number of submissions.

    Will await your update.

    Thanks.

    Good evening,
    If I qive a optional limit of 15, the first 15 submissions get the 'success message', the next submissions get 'you're on the waiting list (in case someone of the first 15 cancels)'.
    Is this more clear?

    Thank you for clarifying.

    But how do you intend to impose the 'optional limit'? You will monitor the email submission manually right? 

    As currently, we do not have the ability to automatically catch the submission counts and dynamically change 'messages' according to the submission number.

    I created a test form here, you may test it. Perhaps it may help in further achieving your requirements.

    In this test form I included a unique id field that will increment base on the form submission count. The notification message, on its subject I included the unique id field which enable me to see right on the email message inbox subject what submission it was already. You can check the notification email here.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the testform.

    I will look into your solution. It is helpful when you can switch the form off when you recieve the ...th message. Problem is I can't be sitting at the computer waiting to shut some of the 15 forms off.

    Can you please send me a message when the dev team re-enables the form limit, or makes the feature with a second sucess message, please.

    I looked at some other solutions and they have a form limit, but I want to stick to jotform.

    Thanks,

    Korneel

    Unfortunately, I was not able to find any work around about sending custom notification email based on submission number using built in JotForm features. 

    However, I have added a note to the ticket in order to inform you once the form submission limit feature is re-enabled.

    Thank you for using our services.

    Hello,
    Is there any progress on the form submission limit, please.
    My customer wants an easy way to control some 25 different forms.
    (I saw on another form builder they advertise they have a form submission limit so i can't see why you have pulled that feature.
    Many people would benefit from this.)
    I hope this feature can be quickly restored.
    Kind regards,
    Bonte Korneel

    @despin

    As for the moment , the submission limit feature is not available.  However the request is on the request list. However the development team gets a high workload and has to work based on priorities, so I could not tell for sure when this feature will be bring back to the scenario

    But, there is a workaround that might (or might not) help you, it involves PHP coding and RSS reports, please take a look at this guide

    Best regards

    Jeanette

    This is not currently possible, but we hope to get that option at some point in the future.

    However, please check the following information from similar thread that may be helpful for you.

    I would like to inform you that it is possible to make required agreement check box with us.

    Moreover, it is possible to use conditional logic on forms to hide form Submit button if agreement check box is not checked.

    Please take a look at the following example:

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Hi,

    You can add a "unique id" field to your form, and check it if it is greater than 15 with a condition.
