    Hello! 

    We are using the Dynamic textbox widget to have multiple people register at once with a group. Is there any way to have a tracker on how many individuals have registered? I saw the "Ticket purchase" widget but don't know if it is compatible with what we are doing. Here is a link to one of our registration pages. Right now we are manually calculating the submissions after exporting to excel so any help that would give us this information in an easier manner would be great!

    Yes, you can do that with the help of the Form Calculation Widget.

    First, make sure that the Count textboxes option of the Dynamic Textbox widget is set to Yes.

    After that, add the Form Calculation Widget and add the field you want to count (Names of Girls Attending... in this case).

    After that, the count should work like this:

    Okay so I understand that part which I already have set up. I am now trying to find an app or widget that will count the number of people total for all forms and stop registration once it hits our maximum. I know there's a "Ticket Purchases" widget that does this but I'm not sure if I can connect the two widgets if that makes sense....


    Any Ideas?

    I am afraid you cannot combine them since the Ticket Purchases subtracts only by one. If the user added 2 or more names of girls, how would that be represented in the Ticket Purchases?

    There is the Submissions Counter widget but this only counts the total number of submissions.
