    How to limit the number of options selected?

    Asked by selva2383 on October 07, 2016 at 01:16 AM

    Just stumbled across your product last month and have been pretty impressed so far. Great job team.

    I have created only 1 form so far and in that, there is a field "Events Interested" which has plenty of options given as checkboxes.

    If the user selects more than three checkboxes, how can I prompt him that "There is a limit of 3 events per person"?

    Would be great if you could please let me know at the earliest.

    Many thanks in advance.
