    How can I limit the number of submissions for a certain option?

    Asked by appmix on April 19, 2015 at 04:43 PM

    I'm creating a Table Reservation form for a restaurant, and we need to set a limit of possible booked tables for each choice of time, so we don't go over our capacity. I understand it's very complicated to manage things once they're past submission, but is there any way to solve my problem?

    There are 2 widgets that I think will work for your requirement.

    You can use both or either of them.

    1. Date Reservation Widget

    link: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/date_reservation

    This will allow you to reserve dates in the calendar and locked the availability once the slot is taken already.


    2. Ticket Purchases Widget

    link: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/ticket_purchases

    using this widget, will allow you to have a max number of available slots. Once all slots are taken, the particular option/slot will not be available anymore.

    Hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.
