    I have been searching for a form solution like yours, it looks very nice indeed and very easy to use. I am part of an organisation that are setting up an event this summer. For this event we want to make sure we have an equal amount of males and females participating and would therefor like to limit the amounts of registrations/tickets based on that specific question.

    I have found a way to limit the number of total responses, but is there a way to limit responses based on a singular question?

    Best regards

    So, what you are looking for is to prevent the number of Female people from exceeding the number of Male people and vice versa? If that is correct, then the Gift Registry widget should work perfectly for your needs. You can find it here:

    In that way you can give to both choices a limit of number of times they can be chosen. For example in the next form, I set a limit of 3 times the options can be chosen, however I already chose them twice, so there is just on item left, once the item is chosen and the form is submitted I will not be available any more. Here is the form, feel free to test it:

    Once there are no more items left, they cannot be chosen and if the widget is set as required, the form will not be submitted.

    I hope this helps. Please inform us if you need further assistance with this inquiry.

    So, I have a followup question on this.

    The solution with using the gift_registry seems to working perfectly. But if I want two different gift_registrys in the same form; in my case first for making sure we get an equal amount of female and male participants and then later we need a limit to how many there are left of two different types of tickets. Should I use the same API key for both questions or should I create a new one for the second question?

    Hello Foreningenursula,

    Yes you can use two "Gift Registry" in your form and you can use the same API key in both the widget. Using two different API key in two different "Gift Registry" will make no difference at all.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions. I would suggest you to create a new thread for your question.

    Thank you!
