    Class Registration - need to limit the number of places sold

    Asked by corinnebible on July 05, 2011 at 05:09 AM

    I am using JotForm as a class registration successfully and now have incorporated PayPal, again successfully.  However, if a class can only take 10 people, how do I prevent more than 10 people paying?  It there a number limit that could be added?

    Hi Corinne,

    Thank you for your message. Unfortunately you cannot limit the number of submissions of a form at this time. The workaround for now is to monitor your form's submissions report and manually disable the form once it reaches 10 valid submissions.

    To disable a form, open the form on the form builder and set "Status: Disabled" from the Preferences button on the toolbar. 

    Hope you find this helpful. Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    OK, this was exactly my question as well. It is now 10 months later, have you added this option yet?
