    How to allow inputs of minimum 6?

    Asked by Grahammilton1985 on April 23, 2015 at 07:11 AM

    Hi

    I would like to not allow people to put a value of less than 6 in my 'how many people' field

    IF they put 1,2,3,4 or 5 in I'd like an message to appear saying - you need to call us

    How do I do this? I assume its with conditions?

    Cheers

    Hello Graham.

    Don't worry, you do not need any new Conditions for this. If you want users to input a number of people, you may want to use a number field for How many people?, instead of the current text box.

    In the Properties of this number box, you can even set the minimal value to 6.

    If you want a custom error message when the customer enters a number less than 6, you can set this up by:

    1. Going to Setup & Embed
    2. Preferences
    3. Advanced Settings
    4. Edit Form Warnings
    5. Change the text "Input field should not be less than" with the following:

    Please call us to register less than

    This will results in your form looking like this when a customer tries to input a lesser value:

    Please try this out and let us know how it goes. (Note that I am not a member of the JotForm staff, but I'll be glad to help.)

    Kind regards.

    1. You can add the number field and define a minimum value as mentioned by bokid.

    2. Then you can add a text field where you can put the warning message "Please call us to register..."

    3. You can add a condition so that is number is less than 6 show message:

    You can test and clone the demo form:
