    Condition that restrict form submission once the entered value is less than the requirement

    Asked by Timothy Steck on January 06, 2016 at 09:07 AM

    We ask for the year of a car and would like the value to be less than or equal to 2016 for example.  If not, then give the user an error and don't allow the form to submitted until the user corrects the input.

    Yes, that's possible by creating a show/hide condition. By simply hiding the submit button base on a condition, users will not be able to submit the form.


    1. First, add a number field in your form. This is where the user enters the year.

    2. Create a Show/Hide Field Condition that hides the submit button if the entered year is greater than 2016.

    Sample condition:

    You can also add more actions, e.g. show a warning message.
