    Thanks for your response.
    How is a user notified when the 100 submission limit has been reached?

    You will be notified when you reach 90 percent of your submission limit. If you will reach any of the monthly limit mentioned by my colleague, your forms will be disabled, and it will be invisible from your website (if you have it embedded). No one would be able to submit to your forms.
