    I am trying to set up a form that lets different people on a leadership team (e.g. Bob, Sue, Tom) sign up to take responsibility for particular tasks (e.g. Set up tables, Bring chips, Bring drinks, Bring paper plates, ...)

    Once Bob signs up to "bring chips" and to "bring drinks", then I would like those two options to no longer appear on the Multiple Choice Select List, so that when Sue and Tom go to sign up for a responsibility, the options that Bob has already claimed are no longer showing up as available.

    Or to put my question a different way, each item in the Multiple Choice Select Box should only be able to be selected one time across all form submissions. Is this possible? Thank you for any suggestions!

    You can try using the Gift Registry widget. 

    Here's my demo form that you can check and test: https://form.jotform.com/72845158528971

    In the demo form, I added the Gift Registry widget.

    After that, I set the item and the number of items that are available.
