    I am working on a sign-up form, where I only need one person per spot. Is there a widget that would eliminate an option from the form if it has been selected already?

    Thank you!

    Yes, you can use any of the following widgets to control the number of times an item can be selected:

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

    Inventory - https://widgets.jotform.com/app/inventory

    Quantity Gift Registry - https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/quantity_gift_registry

    Based on what you have described, I assume that each person will be allowed to select only one of the available options. Additionally, each option should be available for one person, and once it is selected by someone, it is no longer available for other people.

    If the above is correct, it may be best to use the Gift Registry widget. Then, set it up to have Max Selection of 1, and also use {1} as the number of items:
