If you need to limit responses, then you are on the right post. Read the blog to execute it.

Hit the Switch

Users love as it is straightforward and handle with ease, and part of the easy feature is that it will allow stopping receiving responses at any time. Navigate to the Responses button of the form, and you will locate no receiving responses button.

Click on it and send messages by explaining it. Though it seems as everything has fixed, the process is not perfect. The actual way is to click on the switch manually, as the form reaches the exact threshold. This means that you have to track the number of entries. It is surely not the wastage of time as checking the number of responses. You can also move to the insert solutions.

The FormLimiter add- on display as the better trick. It will limit the number of replies but also offers 3 different categories. You can manage the automatic prevention of a specific response, also on the particular date and time and the cell value.

A Step Back

The other addon is the Control Accepting Responses is the little leap forward. The benefit of it to continue in the game is that it lets you move to step back and conduct the quiz or survey before.
