    How do I set entry limits on specific fields in questions?

    Asked by Lifepoint on November 07, 2016 at 02:37 PM

    I would like to set a limit on the number of entries for a checkbox question option. For example on this form specifically, I would like to set a limit when 5 people check "parking team" and make that option no longer available once this number has been reached.

    We have several widgets that will allow for setting a specific number of times and option can be selected.  Here are those widgets:

    The appointments slots widget would likely be the best for your use case.
