    How to cap number of submissions in my form

    Asked by Vicki on October 23, 2014 at 10:17 PM

    I want to cap the number of people who can apply under one group application form.  I also need to have two fields - one for adults and one for youth...together capping the intended number.  How do I make this happen?

    Hi Vicki,

     

    As I understand, you want to create a "limit" on the number of submissions on your form right? If so, then please check this very helpful guide: How to Limit Submissions in a Form

    In my opinion, it would be better to just create 2 forms for adult and youth then divide the form limits in to 2. If your form limits is 20 then it will be 10 for adult form and 10 for youth form.

     

    There are other ways to cap or limit number of submissions:

    1. Widget: Gift Registry

    2. How to Set Unique Submissions on a Form

    3. How to set Form Limits Based on a Unique Question

     

    Hope this helps. Thank you.

    Hopefully what you referenced will work. I can't divide the numbers (adult
    vs. youth) because they come together for one specific table (i.e., there is
    a limit of 10 people, regardless of who, per table).and then collectively,
    there are only so many tables. I'll probably end up just stopping the
    applications manually when I get to different numbers.

    Hi,

    Well if that is the case then limiting the number of submissions will definitely help.

    1. On the Form Editor, go to "Setup & Embed", then click "Preferences"

    2. Go to "Form Limits" tab, under that you will see "Submission Limits". If the submissions reaches its number of limits, the form will be disabled.

     

    You can also use Conditions so you can hide fields intended for adult or youth only. Check this guide about Smart Forms Using Conditionals

     

    Hope this helps. Thank you!
