Is it possible to have a total number of units and have it reduced as the form is submitted?Asked by selvecchio85 on August 24, 2016 at 08:55 PM
Is it possible to have a total number of units (say 5) and have it reduced as the form is submitted? For Example:
5 Units to start
Person 1 selects and submits 1 and now there are only 4 for the next person
Person 2 selects and submits 3 and now there are only 1 for the next person
I know something similar can be done using the calculation widget, but not sure if this can be done exactly like this.
There are widgets that automatically do this.
You can check them here https://widgets.jotform.com/search/registry
The commonly used is Quantity Registry widget https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/quantity_gift_registry
Inventory widget https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/inventory
You can test this demo form https://form.jotform.com/61471146729964
Upon submission, the quantity should diminished.
Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
That does help, thank you.
On behalf of my colleague you're welcome.
