    To my understanding, you have set your form's Unique Submission property to either "Loose check" or "Strict check" before and now that you have decided to set it back to "no check" you're still getting the error message, "Sorry! Only one entry is allowed. Multiple submissions are disabled for this form.", is that correct?

    Loose check only uses cookies to check uniqueness. Users can bypass this by clearing their browser's cookie or use different browsers. 

    Strict check also checks IP addresses. When enabled only 1 submission entry per 1 unique IP address.


    I have made some test. I have created a form and set it to both "Loose Check" and "Strict Check" one at a time. But when I set it back to "No Check", I was able to submit the form multiple times. Even if you didn't clear my browser's cache to bypass "Loose Check", just as long it is set to "No Check" you should be able to submit your form multiple times. 

    I have cloned your form and was able to reproduce the issue you're having. 

    I have set it first to "Loose Check" then submit the clone form twice. The first submission went through, but the second one didn't as I got the warning message already. I set the Unique Submission property back to "No Check" then made a submission again using the same answer I have entered on my previous attempts and surprisingly, I still wasn't able to submit the form. However, when I changed my answer for another submission, I was able to submit the form already. 

    I think, it might have something to do with this: 

    I'm not sure how were you able to set the value of the "Unique Question" to "3", when, suppose to be, it should be a drop-down where you can select the label or title of form fields present in your form. Please check this guide: How-to-set-Form-Limits-Based-on-a-Unique-Question


    I have checked the drop-down for the "Unique Question" on other forms that I have and found this:

    The fields present on my form are not shown on the drop-down for Unique Question when it should be.

    I will be escalating this to our developers so they may look into it. You will be receiving updates regarding this on this thread, however, I would like to apologize if I cannot provide any ETA to when this will be solved and I'm sorry for the inconvenience. 

    Thank you.
