Hi Everyone,

Is there a way to restrict multiple entry in the forms?

Or any way I can set the validity of the form for a particular duration?


Regards,

    Hi @Abhiraj Joshi

    No, there currently isn't a way of restricting specific users from filling out a Smartsheet form multiple times. However, you can use a formula in the underlying source sheet to flag a row if it's a duplicate (there are a number of Community posts with this formula solution, such as this one).

    As to your second question, you can manually Deactivate a Form URL at any time. Keep in mind that this would deactivate the form URL for all users (see: Manage and Distribute a Form).

    Please let our Product team know about your suggestions and feedback by filling in this form, here!

    Cheers,
