    Hi EffectiveLeadership,


    If you want to limit the number of submissions through your form, you can do the following:


    1. Open your form in Edit mode and click Preferences in the top toolbar.

    2. In the Preferences popup, open Form Limits tab.

    3. Enter the Submissions Limit.

    4. Click Close Settings.

    5. Save your form.


    I hope that helps!

    thank you for the answer.

    But it is relevant to the whole form.

    I meant the restrictions of answers to one question. For example, I put the "flag" in "form tools". I put several options which cab be chosen and every options should have a restriction to limit number of participant at one session.
