    I'm interested in using JotForm to have students register for classes.  Can I create a registration form that has a limit on the number of students who enroll?


    Thank you!

    Yes! you can limit submission in your form. Please follow this simple steps:

    1. While on the Setup and & Embed tab, click Preferences

    2. In the Preferences window click the  Form Limits tab

    3. On this tab you can limit the number of submissions and/or set an expiration date:

    Thank you--that is very cool.

    Now to get more it possible for a form to have multiple courses on it, each of which would have a submission limit?

    Thanks again!

    Hello lincolnspa,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to create form limits for every courses.

    My suggestion is to create multiple form for every course and use our text field to display that form based on the course selection.

    Please check this demo form I have created for you:

    The above form has 3 different forms displayed based on the selection of the dropdown value. Here is the three forms which is embed:


    What is actually done is that we have built 3 forms for 3 courses and all the forms has it's own submission limits. We created a fourth form where all the 3 forms are embed. At any point only one form is displayed on the form based on the conditions on selection value of dropdown. 

    Feel free to clone this form if you want to take a closer look. This guide should help you in form cloning:

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you!

    I like that!  How did you embed the three forms into the big one?

    Last question (maybe :)

    I'd like people to be able to pay for all courses once they have selected the one(s) they want.  Can I add a field at the end of each embedded form to send users back to the original page?  And once they're on the original page, can the form total up the courses selected and send users to PayPal to pay?

    I will use my colleague's sample form to illustrate. 

    In order to embed the three forms into the bigger one: 

    1. First, copy the iframe code from each of the smaller forms

    2. Create page breaks to separate each of the smaller forms into their own space on the large form

    3. Under each page break, drag-on a Text (HTML) field, and paste the iframe code from step one into the HTML field as shown

    You can have your form users view their results when they complete filling the form with a Thank You page. You have a variety of options with this feature.

    You may also want to consider creating your own order form by integrating paypal to collect payments.
