How to set Form Limits Based on a Unique Question

November 16, 2021

Let’s suppose you are running a contest and would like to limit unique entries or values in a form. For example, you might want to accept unique mobile numbers. To accomplish that, follow the steps below:

  1. Add a Short Text element (rather than the pre-designed phone field) and label it as Mobile Number.
    form-builder-short-text-mobile-number
  2. Go to Settings, then hit the Show More Options button.
    form-builder-settings-show-more-options
  3. Scroll down to the Unique Question option and set it to Mobile Number.
    unique-question-mobile-number

A warning message will appear if a user sends a mobile number that already exists in your submissions.

You can customize the warning message.

Currently, the Unique Questions feature is available only for the following elements:

  • Email
  • Short Text
  • Dropdown
  • Number
