    Hi,

    You cannot restrict the user per day. 

    BUT you can restrict it per user instead. Review this guide How-to-Set-Unique-Submissions-on-a-Form

    Using the guide, you can prevent the same user in submitting the same form again.

    --

    You can also set limit submission on the form. Check this guide How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form

    Hope this help. Inform us if you have further question.

    Thanks.

    so if i change it to strict check and then the next day i turn the check off and then on again, will it let the user submit a form again?

    You have to set the strict check to OFF the next day to allow users to use/submit  the form again.

    If you only set OFF and ON again, it is still possible to detect the same user. The checking is cookie base, it is possible the cookie data stays on the same user.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I believe I have the same issue.. I'm now at 717 submissions with 9 days left. 

    So as I understand it I can't limit my total submissions to a "value" per day.

    I guess that would defeat the purpose of an upgrade. After a number of years this is the first time I've ever been so high.

    If I disable the form that is being used so frequently can I have a custom message appear?

    "Try again March 1st"

    Thanks,

    Robert
