    Question on Quota of responses

    Asked by UCRGradDivision on February 26, 2015 at 07:59 PM

    I am a new JotForm user from FormsCentral.  I have two questions:

    1.) Can I put a quota on how many responses for one question are received, but still allow the rest of the form to be filled?  For example, if I am having an event where people can sign-up for three different concurrent sessions, can I make it so that when one of the sessions has reached it's max (occupancy 30) the other two sessions are still available to registrants?  If not, do you have an idea for a work-around?

    2.) Do you have a way to view a summary report?  I can only see the spreadsheet, which does not help me with "at-a-glance" planning.  

    I am attaching a screenshot of the "Summary Report" screen from FormsCentral which shows both of these.  There are two different concurrent sessions which were capped and which we are able to see very clearly and easily from the submissions interface.

    Many thanks!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, the screenshot URL you provide was invalid, so I could not see the image of the Summary Report.

    As to your current inquiry, please refer to my responses on below.

    If my understanding is correct, you could be referring to a tool or widget that can do this. 

    There are 2 jotform widgets that I think will work for what you need.

    a) Reservation Widget 

    The Reservation Widget, using its calendar tool will allow you to reserved/saved a selected date(session) on the form. If the selected/reserved date was already selected, it will not be available anymore for the other users of the form.

     

    b) Gift Registry Widget

    The Gift Registry widget will allow you to setup items(sessions/selections) that have a predetermined number of quantity.  If all the quantity have been used up, the specific item/session will no longer be available to the next form user.

    You can try the demo form here http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43155172335955?
