    How to count the number of submission on a form?

    Asked by AnimalEnergy on June 07, 2017 at 02:57 PM

    I have a form that will be completed six times for one email address.  Is there a way to automatically count this? 


    I would need use Zapier to pass this information onto Ontraport.

    A Submissions counter widget (https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/submissions_counter) could be the best fit for what you need:

    It will show the count of total submissions and it will increase with each submission:

    Could that work for you?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!

    I'm looking to count per email address.  This particular form I'm creating is to be submitted six times per email address.

    The problem with that setup is that you need to know previous responses (previous emails actually) so you can count the number of submissions, and unfortunately, we don't have that option. 

    The only thing I could think of is using one of these widgets:



    -Ticket purchase

    And I mentioned those because they can track how many items are chosen with each submission.

    So if a user selects them and submit it will remain 5, and it will deduct with each submission.

    But, the issue is how to check the email and make sure that it is used before.

    Do you, by any chance know upfront the emails they will be using? If you do then we could probably set conditions that would allow/disallow users to use the form.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!
