    Is there a way to limit the number of submissions in a calendar month?

    Asked by Mark on November 20, 2015 at 09:01 AM

    Is there a way to limit the number of submissions in a calendar month?

    ie You can submit 15 submissions through this form in the month of January; another 15 submissions in the month of February; another 15 submissions in the month of March without having to manually reset/extend the parameters at the end of each month?

    Regarding your question, if you meant the total amount of submissions in a month,

    As far as I know, it is not possible with Jotform.

    However, we can try Submissions Counter widget. You can see more details of this widget here.

     

    Moreover, you must limit the amount of submissions from From Limits.

    I hope it is helpful for you.

    If you require any further information, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you. I have tried this. However, I want the 15 submission limit to reset on December 1 and again on January 1 without my having to manually intervene. Possible?

    Unfortunately no. It is only possible if you manually update the timeframe in Expiration date section (which you saw on the guide you have originally posted a comment on: http://www.jotform.com/help/137-How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form )

    The only option that you could use is if you are familiar with a bit of codding.

    If you are, you could access our API and have a script on your server (cron job activating it would work), which would move the time for you.

    You could do that by using PUT /form/{id}/properties and then changing the expiredDate property.

    If you are not familiar with codding, you would need to hire a developer that would help you with that, but as mentioned, it would allow you to change the time when the form should be disabled automatically and would currently be the only way to do it without doing it manually.
