    Can you limit the number of people to sign up for a specific date?

    Asked by mattdancsecs on May 27, 2014 at 11:45 AM

    Please take a look at this form. We currently ask clients to select the date in the calendar and then submit the Jotform. Since we can not limit the amount of people some courses all of a sudden will over fill. 

    Ideally We would like to add the dates to a dropdown menu and then limit the number of submissions for each of the dates.

    On an even better level (I dont want to ask for to much but this would be awesome) When the specific date in the dropdown has hit the limited amount of submissions it is hidden from the dropdown or I can add a custom text like "SOLD OUT" ghosted over the date.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Hi,

    What you are looking for is completely achievable with our Gift Registry widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/gift_registry

    That way you can list your available dates and set a limit for them to be chosen. Please see this sample form: http://form.jotform.co/form/41464740382858

    As you can see once an item reaches its limit the item is grayed out and is no longer available.

    Please inform us if this fits your needs or if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    So if all 12 spots are sold will the option to submit the form still work?

    If I only have 1 product and 1 date I can just set the form to have a submission limit to 12. If I do that what happens to the form? What error will it give the user?

    Hi Matt,

    Once the available dates are taken, the form will stay active but the field will no longer be selectable. Make the Gift Registry required, that way, user will prevent them from submitting the form if field is already grayed out.

    Please let us know if you need further help.
