    We are using JotForm for our online ticket sales. I understand we cannot cut off by number of tickets sold, but rather by submissions. If I have the form cut off at 75 submissions, but we never hit 75, can I then have it cut off by a date and time?

    Yes, you can. Just select Disable on Date and Submission Limit in the Form Status settings.

    But can I do Submission Limit first then Date? If 75 submissions are not reached it will cut off on X date and time? I don't want to oversell an event.

    Yes exactly. You need to setup both settings. First you setup the form to expire after 75 submissions. And then you set up the form to disable on a specific date.

    If your form doesn't hit the 75 submissions but the date is due then it will effectively disable your form.

    So setup each individually? Don't use the date and submission setting?

    Sorry my mistake there. I meant to say to use the disable on date and submission limit setting. It should look like this:

    Just to confirm if we have 75 submissions before X date that I have setup, the form will disable, correct?

    Yes that is correct. It will disable after 75 submissions or after the specified date. Whichever comes first.
