    Is there a way to display the number of slots remaining off the form itself?

    Is there a way to display the number of slots remaining off the form itself? I know there's a widget i can use to show it on the form proper, but I'd like to, for example, show the number of remaining slots on my sidebar. Is that possible?

    There is a way, but not an easy one.

    You will have to create a script that will query JotForm's API for the number of submitted entries, subtract it from your specified limit then display it on your page as you wish.

    However, this will require some intermediate scripting skills. If you know someone who knows JavaScript or PHP, then you can ask them to do it for you. Otherwise, I'm afraid you're going to have to hire someone who can do it.

    Hope this post points you to the right direction.

    Kind regards
