    How can I restrict the number of times a date is selected?

    Asked by RMF  on March 27, 2017 at 05:32 AM

    I started creating a form that would allow a customer to book an appointment for a collection service and then select a date. The dates available to the user depend on the collection service, so I put a list of services in a drop down menu. This meant I was able to show them different restricted date fields based on the one selected. The problem I have is that I do not want to allow unlimited selection of the same date, and so would like to restrict the number of times a particular date is selected.

    For example, only 10 users could pick any given date, after which, that date would no longer be available.

    Is there any way of achieving this?

    Yes, this is possible with Jotform with the help of the Appointment Slot widget.

    You can create a condition on your form that will SHOW the corresponding Appointment Slot widget based on the selected option from a drop-down field (Collection Service).
