Can I create a church service weekly reservation form that limits total # of people?

    Our church is returning to in-person worship in a few weeks. We will be limiting the number of people at a service to maximum of 25 -- they may come in small groups, though (e.g., a couple or family), so the form will have a field with # in group.

    We can do the basic info in any form system (name, contact info, # in group, date of worship, etc.).

    What we don't know whether/how to do in Jotform is to EITHER tell them up-front whether their group will fit (i.e., available spaces for the date they pick) OR tell them they won't fit if they submit a request that takes us over 25.

    Can this be done -- and in particular, without too much special config/coding. As you might guess, we're all volunteers, and who knows what the skills will be of someone maintaining the form down the road!

    Apologies, but I was not able to pick up what your requirement is. Can you please elaborate more on what you're trying to accomplish? From how I understand your query, you want to have a weekly reservation, wherein you can limit the number of persons that can book on a specific day? Is that correct? If so, you may try adding the "Weekly Appointment Planner" widget into your form.

    Here's a guide on how you can add a widget to your form:

    If you are referring to something else, kindly please provide us more information so we can determine if what you're aiming for is possible.

    We will wait for your response.
