    Is it possible to restrict submissions based on an entered value?

    Asked by aduell on April 13, 2017 at 06:49 PM


    I am creating a form for families to register their children for a week long event. I would like to create a condition whereby if a family attempts to register a child who is younger than 5 OR older than 11 then a message will show up reminding them that registration is only for children ages 5-11. 

    Is that possible? 

    Thanks much!

    You could add a text message to let your user know the entered age cannot be less than 5 or greater than 11. 

    Then following a condition will help you to show the text message when entering an incorrect age:
