    Hi is it possible to limit the number of downloads for digital/e-goods?  Or put an expiration date/time on a download link?

    Thank you

    Hi, There is a way to set an "expiration date" on a field by using the Show/Hide conditions on your form.  You need to add a date field and set the conditions to hide/show the product-field before or after a certain date. Here is a thread that deals with the matter in more depth.  Please let me know if this helps!

    Hi Eduardo, thank you for your reply I will take a look at it but, I think I should have specified that the digital goods are for sale and I want to limit the number of times the customer would be able to download the item.

    Thanks again

    I think you are talking about a link for the digital good that you might place into a Jotform (either in an HTML field or into the Thank You page) in order to re-direct it  to an external page where the user will be able to download the digital goods.

    A possible workaround might be to implement Unique submissions. Please take a look at this guide for further details

    Thanks, I will consider the Unique Submissions option as well.  Have to consider the client's overall needs.
