    How to book a place of an event out of many?

    Asked by josaunders on November 09, 2016 at 04:52 AM

    We are running training over several months. I need to be able to offer a series of dates at different venues each with different number of spaces available (so, 15 places for this session, 8 places for that etc.), reducing as they are booked until no more spaces are available.

    Data captured needs to show name and e-mail of each person booking and the session they have booked for.

    How can we do this please?

    My recommendation would be to use appointment slot widget in your form. Please find the example screenshot below:


    I have created an example form for you. Please check the following form link: https://form.jotform.com/63132366092957. You can clone and modify the form. 

    Also, you might need to limit the form submissions as the following guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/137-How-to-limit-submissions-in-a-form 

    Before starting, please take a look at our booking and event registration templates.

    Moreover, do not forget to set notification and autoresponder emails.

    If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be glad to help you.
