    How can we limit how many times someone can select pre-set available time from dropdown?

    Asked by WinterKoh on April 07, 2015 at 04:21 AM

    For example i would want to limit the number of selections/form submissions for a drop down list. 

     

    Example: 

    930am-1030am - limit to 15 clicks

    1030-1130am - limit to 15 clicks

    Total of 60 clicks only and form will be closed for submissions. 

    selected selected option Submissions form submissions limit submissions

    Based on what you have mentioned there are 2 things.

    1. You want to separate the the number of selections of specific time

    2. You want to limit the number of submissions on your jotform.

    To accomplish the first, I would suggest using our Appointment Slots widget.

    You can see here how to add it: How to Add a Widget to your Form

    Now in regards to the second question, I would suggest taking a look at the following guide: How to Limit Submissions in a Form

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Now I should just mention that usually we can assist with only one question per thread, but as they are both short, I have answered both here.
