    How can I limit the number of submissions a form can receive?

    Asked by cwmn on August 23, 2016 at 11:05 AM

    Trying to create a form which allows either individual or 2 person teams to sign-up for an event but want to cap participation at 64 entries total. I tried using the ticket widget but had issues. Any clue how something like this could be created?

    I would suggest you to take a look to the "Disable" feature, you may disable your form on a certain date, on a submissions limit or both. 

    You should disable the form once it has reached 64 submissions, which is your limit for total submissions. 

    Here is a guide that will provide you with more details about this: How-to-limit-submissions-in-a-form

    Additionally, you may show the number of submissions your form has or the number of left submissions, this widget will help you with that: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/submissions_counter 

    Regarding to the widget you were using, I think you're referring to the Ticket Purchases widget, please open a new thread and provide us the details about the issues you're facing with this widget, we will be glad to assist you with that.

    That gets me part of the way, is there any option to show the number of submissions?

    This will be achieved with the widget I provided above: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/submissions_counter 

    It will help you to show the current number of submissions for your form or the remaining submissions. 

    To set up what info should be shown, please first click on the widget and click on the wizard icon: 

     

    Once there you will be able to set up which info should be shown:

    Hope this helps.
