    How can I limit the number of times an option can be selected

    Asked by marleygray on March 28, 2017 at 02:44 PM

    Hello,

    I would like to have a table available for people to select and sign up.

    Once they have selected that option, it is no longer available for someone else to choose. How do I make it so that noone else can select the same option.. eg (only one person can select a specific time)..

     

    Thanks!

    There are a few different widgets that will allow for limiting the number of times an option can be selected.  Here are those widgets:

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/inventory

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/appointment_slots

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/quantity_gift_registry

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/gift_registry

    Each will allow for limiting the number of times an option can be selected.  Once the quantity available reaches 0, the option will be disabled.
