    Greetings! 👋


    It is not possible to achieve what you mentioned above using our dropdown field.


    A workaround is to use Widgets meant to deduct the amount available.

    If you set the value to 1, after the user selects that option, it will drop and no one will be able to select it anymore. You can also limit the user's selection to only one option on the list.

    Try one of these Widgets.


    As for another workaround. It requires some technical knowledge, but possible.

    You can achieve this via creating your form and then downloading the full source code of the form to another webpage.

    -> How to get the full source code of your form


    You will then need to use a custom script to remove the values from other dropdowns.

    Here's an example of how to achieve it: -> https://www.jotform.com/answers/690544
