    We're using a form to sell spots in our event.

    Is there a way to have a live countdown of remaining spots right on our website? By tracking submission numbers?

    Thanks for your time so far.

    You may want to have a look at our Submissions Counter Widget. I think this will fit your needs as it allows you to display the remaining number of submissions, if you have setup a Submission Limit on your form.

    Yes, I've seen this widget but it will only add a countdown to the form. Is there a way to add a embed or Iframe live countdown (just like this widget) except directly onto my website?

    If you want to only allow a specific number of tickets to be sold, you can use inventory widgets along with calculation.  In the following guide under the "Implementing stock limit option" section there is a guide on how to do so:

    If you want to create something outside of the form, you could create a grid listing report to show a list of tickets sold:

    But there is no way to have a submission counter outside of the form that you can add to a web page.
