    Is there something I can add to my enrollment form that will detect a duplicate application and stop a student from filling out a second application?

    Hello minorityrecruit,

    Yes that is possible. You can take advantage of our unique question feature. Example: You can make student's email address or cell number as a unique question and your form will not allow your student to submit the second application with same email address or cell number.

    Here are the steps:

    1. Load your form in editor.

    2. Click on "Setup & Embed"

    3. Click on "Preferences" from the toolbar:

    4. In the preferences toolbar, click on the "Form Limits" tab.

    5. Click on "Unique Question" property and select the appropriate question from the list.
