How to Limit the Number of Blue Form Builder Form Submissions

Limit the number of Blue Form Builder form submissions

Normally, your website’s forms are available all the time so that users can access and submit them any time. However, in some special cases, you just need to collect a certain number of submissions and then disable the form. 

For example, you want to limit the number of an event registration form’s entries because you’re hosting an event that allows a maximum number of people to attend. Or you want to restrict the number of submissions for a job application form or a contest entry form as you only want a certain number of people applying or participating.

If you’re using Magento 2 and finding a solution for this, then please keep reading. In this article, we will show you how to set the form submission limit using Blue Form Builder for Magento 2

How to Limit the Number of Submissions

First, please make sure you’ve already downloaded and installed Blue Form Builder on your site. And you’ve already created a form that you want to set the submission limit. 

For example, the form looks like this:

Contest Entry Form

Now in the form edit page, open Settings > Advanced. Then find Disable form when it reaches X submissions field and enter a number here. When the number of submissions reach this number, the form will be disabled (For the form page, it will be a 404 page. Or if you insert the form somewhere, it will not be displayed):

The short description below the field (Current submission counter: 2) shows the current number of form submissions. 

Finally, simply save your changes. 

Note: In some cases, a user may submit your form more than once. To enable this feature, in Advanced tab, turn on Disable multiple submissions from same device button and you’ll see the following options:

  • Disable Condition: choose the condition to prevent multiple submissions from the same user including: Customer ID, IP Address and Form Fields. If you choose Form Fields, then Form Fields drop-down will appear where you can select your wanted form fields. Remember that you can select multiple form fields: 
Disable multiple submissions from same device by form fields

  • Message when disabled: the message that shows up to notify when a user   submits the form more than once.
