Can I have multiple entries in a form and calculate my form limit based on the number of submissions?Asked by ctamyna on April 07, 2015 at 04:42 AM
We're preparing a form for an event where the seats are limited.
Previously, we included a note "Please submit a separate form for each participant" or something similar so that we can limit the form to 200 submissions, for example, for 200 participants. But we received feedbacks saying it's a hassle, why can't we register in a group, etc.
Is it possible for a form to have multiple entries for each field (e.g. Name, Gender, Email, Phone) and for us to limit the form based on the number of entries (e.g., first submission has 2 entries, second submission has 4 entries, so 6 seats are no longer available)?
Thank you in advance!
While you would not be able to do it in the way you have mentioned, it would be available by limiting the actual number of tickets that can be purchased.
This can be easily done by utilizing this widget: Ticket Purchases
You can also use a different widget that would allow you to add the quantity as well: Quantity Gift Registry
You can see in the following guide how to add them to your jotform: How to Add a Widget to your Form, but do let us know if you have any further questions.
Is there a way to do this without displaying the remaining quantity of each option to the end user?
It is possible to prevent the remaining quantity from being displayed in the form. Simply inject the css below:
To inject the css, first click on the wand icon at the top right of the widget.
Then select the Custom CSS tab and paste the css in the text area.
Once you have saved the changes, the remaining quantity will no longer be seen in the form.
Please note that since we removed the label at the right, once the tickets are sold out the user will not see the 'Sold Out' message. However, this should not be an issue since when the tickets are sold out, the option will be crossed out and the user will not be able to select it.
That is great, thank you!
