    Allow Number field in the Unique Question limit

    Asked by farmcreditIL on August 17, 2015 at 02:55 PM

    We would like this to work in Quick Tools "Number" field because we want to also use the minimum and maximum value. But it appears the Unique Question doesn't work with the Number field. Can you make it work with that? We need the flexibility both offer.

    Yes, it's not possible for now. But I have just created the request ticket and submitted it to our developers. We can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it via this thread.

    A workaround for now would be to add textbox field, forward the value in the number field to this textbox field and use this textbox in the limit.

    To forward, simply use our calculation feature:

    Then you ca hide the textbox field in the form.

    Here's an example form, http://www.jotformpro.com/form/52276065916965
