    I have a 4 session workshop and I do not want users to be able to pick the same option for more than one session.

    Asked by jgreen811 on June 29, 2017 at 09:10 AM

    I have users registering for 4 different sessions for a daily workshop.  If they select a particular worksop for session 1, I want to make sure that option is not available for sessions 2, 3 or 4

    Also in some cases, if they select an option in session 1, a particular option may require 2 sessions so that option would require to be automatically selected for the following session.

    How do I accomplish this?

    It seems like conditional formatting at the dropdown value level.

    Is this the form you are working on http://www.jotform.us/form/71790245668163

    Considering that it is not possible to disable field options with conditional logic, I would suggest you to add custom warning message that will be shown if same options are selected in two different sessions. You can also hide submit button to prevent users to submit the form. 

    You can achieve this with conditional logic. 

    I have created a demo form for Option 1, Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71794543885977 

    Feel free to test it and clone it

    You will have to set conditions to cover all possible options.
