    hello,I would like to limit the submissions based on the specific date

    Asked by kevin Rutkowski on October 29, 2014 at 02:18 PM


    I would like to limit the submissions based on the specific date field in a drop down box. i.e. I have six dates for exams and limited # of seats. Can this be done? thank you

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have multiple dates while limiting the submissions. However, a possible workaround could be restricting users to enter information on the form by showing/hiding the fields based on conditions wizard.

    Based on the conditions, you can also display a message to the user.

    Please check the following demo if that works for you.



    I've placed a hidden date field with current date and list of exams on the form.

    Now, I've added rules based on these two fields 

    Hope this information helps. Please get back to us if you have any other questions. We will be happy to help.
