    Can a user fill in the form only once?

    Asked by nharshavardan on August 03, 2015 at 06:27 AM


    Is it possible to fill in the form only once in a certain duration (a month or so).

    It should be one entry per person per month. Please let me know if it can be done.

    I'm sorry, but I don't think we have a feature that would let you limit with timeframe. We only have the following:

    By unique question: http://www.jotform.com/help/223-How-to-set-Form-Limits-Based-on-a-Unique-Question

    Expiration: http://www.jotform.com/help/137-How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form

    Unique Submission: http://www.jotform.com/help/64-How-to-Set-Unique-Submissions-on-a-Form.


    But I think you can use the unique question limit. You can target the email address field or the name field. Then for them to be able to submit on the next month, simply add the same field for them to fill. Then hide the previous field in the form. You have to do this every month. Well, that means you will have a 12 fields for the whole year and people can still submit to the form if they want to by simply using another name.
