    I want students to complete an option list however I want a drop down box that students complete.  I want a limit on each of the drop down boxes so that only 20 people can select an option. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    Andy

    I'm sorry, but this is currently not possible with Jotform. There is no option to limit the number of submissions per field. A workaround would be to manually monitor the number of submissions in the field then you can hide the field when the limit is reached.

    I have also forwarded this thread to our developers as a feature request. If there are updates, you should know it through this thread.

    Did this ever get answered? We use these forms quite a bit to register people for tournaments and would love to have the ability to automate limiting by age/type bracket...we're currently looking for another platform that already does this

    @tcbubblesoccer: Unfortunately, there's no update yet regarding this matter. Our developers would update this thread if there's any. A workaround we can offer would be to use the following widgets that would allow you to set limits:
