How do I limit the amount of times a specific Choice from a dropdown can be chosen in Cognito Forms?

For instance, I only want the first item to be chosen 3 times, the second item is limited to 6 times and so forth.

You can limit selections in Cognito Forms by assigning quantity limits to your choice fields. Simply do the following:

  1. Select Limit Quantities under Choice Options
  2. Enter quantities for each choice, or leave blank for unlimited
  3. Enter the Quantity Exceeded Error Message to something like Out of stock!

You can learn more about quantity limits in our help documentation!
