    feature request : Unique question, hide not available option.

    Asked by luisgar2001 on April 22, 2013 at 08:39 AM

    I have the form (drop down list) in an iframe of my page, I have UNIQUE QUESTION ACTIVATED.

    If one of the users has already selected one option, next time someone tries the same one the following message is showed


    Sorry! Only one entry is allowed.
    Multiple submissions are disabled for this form.


    And if I press back button in the browser, it goes to the form's previous page instead of going to the form page. (because the form is in an iframe)

    To work out on this I see 2 tasks :

    1.- (and the best) do not allow options already chosen be available to be selected again.
    Trial and error method of chosing an available options is very boring (and worse), imagine select among 10 options when 9 has been already chosen. 
    This is already a request - see 
    (may you update on this)? 


    2.- "back to the form" button.

    (although task 1 were acomplished, this is still need it as if 2 persons load the form at the same time and later chose among the available options the same on, there is no easy way to back to the form).


    That's all. I 'll wait your feedback ;-),                  Luis
