    This is a registration form, to which app. 300 complete.

     

    People who fill out the form get anxious and when they don't here back soon enough - they fill out the form again.

     

    This wastes a lot of time going through the forms and eventually finding out there are 2 of them.

    Hi Dennis,

    May I know which form you would like to apply that effect? You can actually do that by using the Form Limit option under Preferences. Here's the guide that you can follow: http://www.jotform.com/help/223-How-to-set-Form-Limits-Based-on-a-Unique-Question. Just choose a unique question or field so no repeating answer or value will be submitted, let's say you choose the email field, if test@email.com is already submitted, it won't allow for another one with the same value.

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.
