Is there way to set an automatic registration limit on the form?Asked by richmondyoungwriters on February 04, 2016 at 07:13 AM
We register kids for summer camps and would like to be able to automatically limit class sizes. For example is there a way for particular classes on the registration form to automatically shut down and register as "full" or "sold out" when we reach 10 sales?
Can you recommend any widgets other than Ticket Purchases that would limit
the number of registrations and automatically shut down/sell out when we
We would rather not have that information available/viewable on the
website, but we do need to be able to limit class registration and keep
track of it from our end.
I am not sure if I have understood your requirement correctly. Do you mean to say that you do not want to display the available quantity or you just do not want to display the widget itself?
Another alternative is to create separate form for your class and then set the limit of each of your form. The following guide should help you how to set form limits: http://www.jotform.com/help/137-How-to-Limit-Submissions-in-a-Form
Hope this helps.
Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.
Thanks for your response!
Let me try to rephrase my question:
We would prefer not to create separate forms for each class but we do want
to be able to limit and control the number of sign-ups for each class on
the registration form. For example, if we have 8 spaces in a class we'd
like the form to stop showing that class as available when it reaches the
enrollment of 8 students.
We are not selling tickets, we are selling class registration so I don't
think the ticket counter option would be ideal. We also don't necessarily
want the people who are registering to be able to see how many spots are
left, though we'd like to know from our end.
We had this option when we were using Squarespace commerce but we decided
to go with Jotform instead.
Are there any widgets that limit product availability that are only visible
from the back end of the website??
In that case the my colleague's suggestion of "Ticket Purchases" widget will fit into your requirement. Please be noted that ticket purchases is not just for selling tickets but can be used for any requirement where there is a limited availability or inventory.
