    Can I create selections on a form which are interactive with previous responses on the form

    Asked by philiphamilton on May 26, 2014 at 09:37 AM

    I would like to have a  list of items on a form that people can only select if they have not already been chosen.

    Ie if I have 10 items, and 9 people have already selected the other 9, then the 10th person would only be able to choose the one remaining.

    Ie the form data is interactive or vidibility is dependent with the responses already taken.

    Thanks alot

    I believe our Gift Registry Widget can do that. Check it here: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/gift_registry. You can limit each item to just "1" so to avoid duplicate selection.

    You can add the widget to your form by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form

    Here's an example form: http://www.jotform.co/form/33388695411866

    Let us know your thoughts.
