    Unique submission is not enabled but form still shows "Multiple submissions are disabled"

    Asked by SCARHS on April 12, 2017 at 09:55 AM

    Hi support,


    We have an issue with this form:



    It seems like a user tried to enter a submission and it was denied because it was already enter.

    The issue is that I did not activate the option to check double entry.

    Please take look into it.

    Hello SCARHS,

    I did check your form and you have not configured "Unique Submission" or "Unique Question" to prevent multiple submissions. 

    I also went ahead and tested your form by submitting it twice and I am able to replicate the issue you are having. First submission was accepted but when I tried to submit the form second time, it shows message that multiple submission is disabled. Please check the screenshot below:


    I am not sure what is causing this issue. I am reporting it to our backed team we will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Any updates on this issue?

    We found out that Internet explorer is the culprit but only a specific version. Following if the information about this browser. 




    This issue is getting frustrating as some user can't enter any new submission because of this bug.

    This has been assigned to a developer and given a rather high priority.  As soon as they have a chance to address the ticket, they will update you here.

    The form now denies user even on chrome.

    The form is basicly unusable. Please help 

    Can you escalate this? My users are getting angry.

    I've fixed it. Please test and confirm. The unique limit is configured in the old form builder. The new form builder didn't clear it somehow.
