    I have someone who keeps getting errors when attempting to register twice.

    Asked by jdomke1 on July 02, 2014 at 05:23 PM

    I have someone who is trying to register for my event twice. Once for herself and then for her nephew. I only have one restriction for duplicates and confirmed with her she is not using the same CAPID for both submissions. What could be causing this because I'm sure I'll have numerous people wanting to register multiple family members.

    Hi,

    I cloned your form, and tried to reproduce the issue. It seems everything is set up correctly. I'm still investigating, but one thing that sometimes helps prevent our form from conflicting with people's websites is to use the iFrame tag instead of the JavaScript one. Can you try that and see if you still experience the issue?

    Another thing to note, you can use JotForm to collect payment as well, if it's of interest. Let us know if you have questions on how to set that up.

    Thanks.

    I actually want it setup with the restriction but turned it off so someone could register herself and her kid. The have diff names and ID's but the email is the same. The only restriction I had turned on was for the ID.

    OK. It sounds like you adjusted it under the preferences:

    It sounds like you can't have the restriction as it would prevent your users from signing up two people. Let us know if there's anything else you need assistance with. Thanks!

    It looks like it now works based on your testing... got me what changed or why the user couldn't register since it only cares about the ID and not the email address

    @jdomke1 

    I just sent two test submissions with your form with different CID numbers and they all went through as expected.

    So this means your form is working just fine as it should. 

    I also tried entering duplicate CID and when I submit, that's the time I get the unique submission error.

    Seems like all is well. Feel free to contact us again if you come across any issues.

    Regards!
