    I want to close my form after I reach a sum of 60 for a certain field in my sign up form.

    We have 60 seats available and our visitors can reserve up to 6 seats at a time with one of our drop down fields.

    How can I automatically disable the form after we hit 60 reserved seats?

    I assumed you were referring to your form https://www.jotform.com/form/213195751761156

    One way to do this is to use the Inventory widget + Calculations + Conditions.

    Example:

    You can test submit my demo form https://www.jotform.com/213197136441958

    Once the inventory remains none, you will not be able to submit the form anymore.

    Please let us know your thought on this.

    Hi Jonathan, I cannot see how to access a dynamic field for the inventory for calculate widget/conditions. I can only see how to pull the number of tickets on that individual form, not the accumulation of all forms before this one.

    Can you show me how to find that?

    Hi there,

    I reviewed your form and it looks like the limit to the number of bookings is correctly set. Unfortunately there's no option to automatically disable the form once fully booked.

    This is how it will look like once all 60 seats are reserved.

    What we can recommend is to simply set the Inventory Widget to required to keep endusers from submitting the form once fully booked.
