    When will JF have the ability to countdown entries?

    Asked by PriorityER on May 17, 2016 at 06:39 PM

    For example, I'm having a party and I need 

    4 pasta dishes

    4 salad dishes

    4 bottles of wine

    4 desserts

     

    Is there a preference or rule I can set to tick it down to reflect current need and then disappear when the number has been set.

    If my understanding of your requirement is correct, I think you were referring to the feature of the Gift Registry widget and Inventory widget.

    Check them here

    #1. Gift Registry  - https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/gift_registry

    #2. Inventory Widget - https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/inventory

    Here is a demo form with the inventory widget in action http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51413853223953?

    Test submit the form after choosing an item. If you open the form again, you should see the quantity of the selected item diminished.

    If all the items were used up, the particular item will not be available for selection anymore.

    Hope this help. Let us know if got your question incorrect and this will not work for you.

     

    Thanks.
