I have an event that people can register for, but only a number of people can register for each session. Once a session becomes full, I'd like to update the selector... does it make sense to just remove it? My concern with deleting it was there would be a jump from session 5 to session 7, for example. Or, am I able to keep it but make it not selectable?
For now, I changed the wording... but technically people can still select it and submit.
And, what is best practice? I am sure this has been done before!
This can be done with some JS that will check the event is full and deactivate the value. It will require to pass the info to the page, though, which is not that easy. The most reliable way of doing it is through a webservice platform that can 1/ track the number of registrants and 2/ be called by the form when it's loading and notify the form to deactivate some values.
If you want to change the numbering dynamically, you will also need some JS.
Ah, I thought it would (but was hoping it wouldn't, ha) require JS. It would be nice if in the Marketo selector editor there was an option to check to deactivate an item from the list.
Disabling the <OPTION> in the dropdown and counting registrants are actually two different concerns. Related, to be sure -- but even if the second is automated the first still requires that the forms behaviors be enhanced.
Just change the Display Value in Form Editor:
Then include the tiny bit of JS demoed here:
This one is really cool !
I have tried this code out but I can't get it working. The form displays [DISABLED] in the select field and it is selectable. See image:
Am I missing a step?
Can't go in the head, for one. On a Marketo LP, forms JS needs to go just before the end of the body
Thanks Sanford that change made it work.
Leanne, the following article shows somewhat similar functionality implemented on a Marketo landing page.
This allows to actually 'disable' the registration form? or display 'real time ' message on the registration page when the registration is full?
You might be able to use a version of this setup for your requirements.
Hope this helps...
