    How to limit submissions by available products.

    Asked by judycb on April 06, 2017 at 04:25 PM

    We have made a form for members to select from 3 different classes, but each class can only hold 20 people. I see where I can limit based upon submissions, but I need to limit by "product" and hopefully not charge them, but put the on a waiting list. Is this possible?

    That is not possible. However, you can create your products in the Ticket Purchases widget:

    Then do the following to calculate the total and pass it to your payment field:

    1) Add a Form Calculation widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form 

    2) Create conditions to calculate and input the total into the Form Calculation widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-Conditional-Logic-Inserts-Text-Calculation-Into-A-Field 

    Example:

    Note: create a condition per each product you have, since you have 3, you should have 3 conditions like these:

    3) Hide you Form Calculation widget.

    4) Pass the value from the Form Calculation widget into your payment field: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field 

    Example
