    Can you set up a time limit for users that are answering a form?

    Asked by aaronrip on April 29, 2011 at 06:14 PM

    I've set up a quiz but I want to establish a time limit if possible.  Ideally at the end of the time limit the answers would be submitted and an email sent.

    Hi aaronrip,

    Unfortunately as of the moment setting a form time limit is not available.
    However you can limit form submissions by IP:

    1. Click on "Setup & Embed" on the toolbar tabs
    2. Click on Preferences
    3. Change "Unique Submission" to "Strict Check"

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Hi Mliz,

    I know this is an old topic, but has any progress been made on developing a per question or whole form time limit or timer? I would like to collect time-based data on some forms, but can't seem to find a way to do so. (I tried creating an autofill time field and hiding it, but the time data apparently isn't recorded to the results if the field is hidden).
