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

    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).

    Can you please open/create a separate thread with regards on your query for further assistance?

    Thank you!
