    Is there a plugin that removes choices from a list question as different users select them?

    Asked by GoY on February 17, 2015 at 11:49 PM

    I have a form that multiple users use to resesarch information on companies.

    The first question is a drop down that asks them to select a company from a list of 100+.

    They then use the form to enter information under specific headings.

    But I don't want two or more users to choose and research the same company, so I need a plugin that removes choices from a drop down questions as they are selected.

    Google forms have a tool that adds this to a form – is there anything similar from jotform? Can't see myself but I've searched!

    Hi GoY,

    To confirm, you would like a widget that allows you to remove options from a drop down once selected by a previous user?

    Unfortunately we do not currently have a widget that would allow that, however you can use our Gift Registry Widget, this would allow you to set a limit on each item. The item will not be removed once it has been selected but users would not be able to select it once it has been selected before.

    Please inform us if this is a suitable alternative for you.
