    Does this have a way to limit the number of appt submissions? For example, if there are only 10 vaccines or appts, if an 11th person tries to make an appt for the same date the system will automatically not allow the appt to be made?

    Yes, there are two ways to limit the number of appointment submissions per day.

    Here is the first way:

    1. From Form Builder click on Build.
    2. Under the Basic tab, click on Appointment and appointment section should appear on your form.
    3. Click on Properties

    When you click on properties the Settings open on the right hand side.

    Click on Limits and add a number for Maximum Appoints Per Day section.

    The number you set will be the number of appointments you can receive for the selected date.

    Here is the second way:

    You can limit the form submission to a number for each day.

    From Form Builder, go to Settings and Form Settings where you can see the Form Status drop-down.

    Choose Disable on Submission Limit from the form status drop-down. Put a number of submissions you want to receive each day under the Submissions Limit.

    You should be able to limit the submission from both ways.

    I hope the answer helps.
