    Add a submissions countdown to the form

    Asked by LS_Launch on May 05, 2017 at 06:57 PM

    Hi! I would like to give my form users a countdown of how many submissions are left until the form closes. Is there a way to do that?

    Actually, I am using my form as an event registration. Each submission could have 1 or 2 people registering. I would like to use the submission results to drive when the form closes. I want max attendance to be 180, but I can't just close it at 180 submissions b/c  many of those submissions may have a second person. So, right now, I just have the form closing at 100 submissions. I'll monitor the form and adjust that number as necessary. Is there a way to be more accurate? And if so, is there also a way to give a countdown of how many seats are left?

    Hope that question makes sense

    That's possible. Here's how to display the remaining submissions in your form when you enable submissions limit.

    1. First, you will have to add a submissions limit to your form.

    Go to Settings > Form Settings > Form Status - Disable on submission limit then enter the number 

    2. Add the Submissions Counter Widget to your form then set it to count the remaining submissions.

    If you need further clarifications, let us know.
