    OK so my team and I are trying to see if we can setup our Online Contributions form for our organization so that if the user selects that they are contributing as an individual as opposed to one of two separate entities called groups and districts that the user's annual contribution amount should be limited to a maximum of $3,000. We are using PayPal Personal for our payment integration. The link to the form we're currently developing is found here: https://www.jotform.com/build/201575689958173. Is there a way that we can setup our form to enforce this rule, or will this have to be done manually on our team's end? Please let me know, thanks!

    In order to control the amount thru conditions, kindly use a Form Calculation field then have your user type in the amount on that widget.

    Then you can create a condition where if the amount is greater than 3,000, hide the payment field.

    You also need to setup your payment field to read the amount from the Form Calculation field.
