    Creating form limitations

    Asked by jaycw7 on July 21, 2012 at 02:14 PM

    Just wanted to say you guys have a KILLER set up with great pricing.  I appreciate it!.


    I am trying it out and love it and once I get my business launched I am going to buy the top package and might need multiple accounts.


    I have tried others.  They both have the capacity to set dates and times when forms go live and when they cease being available.  They also give you the ability to set how many responses until the form ceases to be available.  This is excellent for contest type forms or limited time/quantity offers.  I would really love to know if or when this would be available with jotform?  It seems to be such a crucial part of what you offer since your product is all about leveraging technology and being hands off...its one more massive step to helping businesses establish an automated system.


    looking forward to hearing back!

    Hi Jay;

    Unfortunately no, it is not possible to limit form submissions and disable a form after reaching a particular number of submissions.

    You will need to keep track of number of submissions manually and disable the form once the limit is reached. You can disable form by clicking on "Preferences" button and selecting "Disabled" for "Status".

    This could help a lot in your requirements. Please inform us of your further inquiry.
