Episode Transcript

Using a checkbox on your form and need to make them unique? Maybe you have 50 seats available for a charity dinner. To let users purchase one or more seats, you ca could use a checkbox field with all of the seat numbers on it (use a select list or radio button field if you want to limit them to one seat instead of letting them choose multiple seats). Each time the form is submitted, any seats selected will be removed from the list. This prevents the same seat from being reserved by two different users.

To use this feature, simply drag your field onto your form.  Then, click the Unique checkbox for that field.  Now, each selection made from that field when the user fills out the form will be removed.  When no options are left on the form, if that field is required, then no one will able to submit to the form. If you go into your data and delete a submission, the options selected for that submission will be added back to your form. This feature will be useful for those selling a set number of an item, taking a set number of reservations, and want to close the form after all items have been selected.
