Gravity Forms Entries Inventory Management

Ever needed to limit the number of entries in a Gravity Form? Like, for booking a given number of places in one shot/submission or buying 3 tickets for an event, etc.

Here’s an example:

  • I have a 10 places event
  • Someone comes to the website and buys 3 tickets (in 1 submission)
  • Another one buys 6 tickets
  • And the last person buys 1 ticket (the last one)
  • The form automatically closes


I wrote a small WordPress plugin that does just that:

  • takes an input field, let’s call it number of places
  • sums all the values from all form entries from the number of places field
  • if the sum of number of places equals the total number of available places, the the form stops taking more entries.

To use this plugin you have to:



  • Go to Form Settings (NOT Global Gravity Form Settings) and
    • Check “Enable entry limit”
    • Set your limit for this form in “Number of Entries” field
    • Set yor message in “Entry Limit Reached Message” field
    • Save settings


As a bonus, the plugin will also check if the current input value in a form is not greater than the remaining number of places:
