    Limit the number of participants base on the remaining slots available

    Asked by Krankine on February 24, 2017 at 07:01 PM

    Good morning,

    im wanting to limit the number of participants who can come on my yoga retreat based on the number of beds available.(Retreat application form)

    I can fit 12 participants and so far there are 6 places booked.

    I want the form to stop taking bookings once the retreat is full.

    is there a widget to do this please?

    Ive cloned my form to have a play but not having much luck as yet!

    Kindest Regards,


    PS i am loving your forms!

    Hi Karen,

    I see this is the form https://www.jotform.co/form/70546792904868 you were working on.

    If I understand correctly, the 'Yoga options' were the one you wanted to apply the limitations to. Correct me if wrong.

    If it is, I believe it will work better if you used the Inventory widget + custom payment field instead.

    The inventory widget will be for the purpose of setting the limits for the number of beds available. Once all items were used up, the item will auto disabled and cannot be selected anymore.

    The custom payment field setup will allow payment collection.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
