    Dynamic Dropdowns with Shut Off after X Entries

    Asked by riversconservatory on August 25, 2015 at 12:05 PM

    I'm trying to put together a form where users can select a specific date and time slot. I've tried the "Appointment Slots" widget, but the amount of data is too cumbersome for a single-list view.

    I'd like to use the dynamic drop-downs widget since it's a much cleaner look, however, is there a way to shut-off options after they've been selected by a user? (Appointment slots does this).

    Unfortunately, there is no way to set any limits on the Dynamic Dropdowns options.

    You might consider using multiple Appointment Slots widgets. This is possible to show different widgets based on user selections with conditional logic on form.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Thanks Mike. Unfortunately,  multiple appointment slots won't work in this circumstance:

    A. Technically users could sign up for multiple time slots since there would be more than one slot widget. 

    B. We would need at least 24 individual slot widgets, which would be very cumbersome to read from the data/back end side. 

    Do you have programmers who write custom code for a fee?

    No, we do not offer paid development services. We can recommend https://www.upwork.com or similar freelancer marketplace websites for custom projects. Thank you.

    Is it possible to send me the contact info for the developer of the Appointment Slots? I'd like to pay him/her to customize this, since they're already familiar with the API.

    I assume you are referring to this link: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/appointment_slots. I see that it was developed by the JotForm Widget Team. If you need to add a feature on that, we can send a feature request in your behalf but we cannot guarantee its implementation, you can open a separate thread with the details of the features you want to add on that widget and we will address it accordingly.

    You can also hire a developer, as mentioned by my colleague, our API documentation is located here: http://api.jotform.com/. For an experienced developer, I believe the API documentation will help a lot, as it is easily understandable. 

    Thank you.
