Event Registration - Limiting registrations (not submissions)

    Asked on February 16, 2016 at 12:02 PM

    Hello, I have read various entries about limiting registrations and have looked at the widgets offered, but I'm not sure any of the options offered will work for my purposes. 

    I am creating an event registration form with three categories.  One category has a limit of 8 registrants, while the other two categories in total cannot exceed 65 registrants.  The form allows up to 5 registrants per submission, so limiting the number of submissions will not work for my purposes.

    I see that the widgets allow one to limit by category, but I cannot figure out how to limit total registration across two categories. Is this possible?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Never mind!  I figured out a workaround using the Inventory Widget.

    For anyone who is curious, I set the two different registration limits (attendees and speakers) using the Inventory Widget, then I set the three registrant types (full registration, discounted registration, and speaker) as a separate field with their respective payment amounts.  The payment calculator multiplies these two fields to come up with the correct payment amount.
