    how to allow only certain number of answers

    Asked by barqawialaa on November 30, 2015 at 09:24 AM

    Hi Everyone,


    the link sent is just an example


    i have 3 categories as you can see

    but i would like only two categories to be answered, i do not want more than that 

    so if borders from books & zara from fashion are choosen then i want to prevent choosing the third category


    thank you

    The easiest way to accomplish this would be to use check box fields, limit the maximum number of selections to 1 for each field, the hide the third field conditionally if the other two are filled. 


    Here is how the form would function:


    You can clone the form to your own account to see the full set up:
