    Why do I keep getting Multiple submissions disabled for form error?

    Asked by usasiegershow on March 28, 2012 at 01:32 PM

    Even after enabling multiple submissions, this keeps giving the same error to our users and is calling a great deal of problems.

    This is the url for the error: http://submit.jotform.co/submit/12864835866/

    Please help.

    Try to re-set your form to accept only unique submissionsagain:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab

    2.  Click the Preferences button

    3.  In the Preferences window, click the Advanced Settings tab

    4.  Set Unique Submissions to Strict Check

    You may also set to Loose Check but this can be bypassed by using another browser or clearing the browser's cookie. Strict check, on the other hand, may be disadvantageous if your target users are on the same network, using the same IP address, such as in schools or organizations. It is up to your discretion on which submission check to use.

    Hope this information will be helpful, lets know if this worked!

    We were using Loose Check so far and that is not preventing the problem from cropping up each time.

    We are getting a lot of angry emails abou this, will try the strict check and reembed the form.

    You should simply disable that check. The goal for the checks is to enforce that people cannot submit from same computer or IP address. If you do not want to enforce that you should disable that feature.
