    We have 80 spaces available for registration. After that we need to ask if registrant needs to be placed on a waiting list. How do we do this?

    To my understanding, you would want to only accept 80 registrants on your form, however, if the 81st registrant would load your form, you would like to have an option for them to select if they want to be on your waiting list.

    If that is correct, then I would suggest you use the Submission Counter widget to verify the total number of submissions you already have in your form.

    Then, create a condition that will check if the submission counter widget already shows 80 to show a field asking your respondents if they want to be on your waiting list.

    If you want to hide the Submission Counter widget from your form then you can add the following CSS codes to the Custom CSS tab of the widget.

    #container {

    display: none;

    }

    I have a test form below which already has 2 submissions. I have set a condition in the form so that it will show the "Do you wish to be placed on our waiting list?" radio button field if the total submission is 3 or higher. You can still make one last submission in the form before it will show the radio button field. Please reload the form after you made the submission.
