Your widget accepts multiple submissions by default. If you want to prevent your email recipients from making multiple submissions in your widget, then Limiting Submissions would be helpful.
When to Limit Submissions?
If your widget collects data for research, statistical analysis, or decision-making purposes, you might want to ensure the integrity of the data by limiting multiple submissions. Multiple entries from the same person could skew the results or introduce bias into the dataset.
Limiting submissions can also help prevent spam and abusive behaviour by malicious recipients.
About Limiting Submissions
The Limiting Submission feature has 2 options-
1. Multiple- Email recipients can respond to the widget multiple times. If the response is changed, then the same submission row is updated with the latest value.
2. Only once- Email recipients can respond to the widget only once. Once a response is recorded, it cannot be changed. When the recipient reopens the email, they will see their initial response pre-filled and they won't be able to change it.
You can limit submissions for the following widgets-
Chip select widget
Star rating widget
Thumbs up-down widget
