    How can I block out some options from the dropdown field on my JotForm?

    Asked by REMAXSuccess on March 31, 2017 at 09:27 PM

    I have a  jotform created for an event, which asks the person registering to select the time wave they'd like. We now have enough people in some of the time slots and I'd like to remove them from the options to select. How do I do this to the existing form, so the address of the form is still used? I do not want to create a new form as we have this advertised. 


    Thanks in advance. This is the form: https://form.jotform.co/70753439012856

    Since the form is already having the dropdown field to select the time slot and there are some submissions received to the form, you may consider removing the options for the time slots that are already filled as shown in the screencast below created using a cloned form.

    Alternatively, you may consider hiding the drop down field and use the Appointment Slots widget on the form to set the limit for each time slot.


    Hope this information helps! Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
