I want to use Forms to plan information sessions for my organization. I would use something like this: 

a) February 12 2 to 4 pm

b) February 13 10 to 12 am

to make them choose the option that is the best for them. 

The thing is, I don't want 200 persons to choose the same session. Is there any way to limit the number of people who can choose one option? I know it is possible in Doodle, but I've never heard of it on Forms.

Thanks!

@asgobeil no it's not possible with Forms. You would need a flow in Power Automate to add each response to a list in SharePoint and count those, and if there were more than x then send an email back saying the session is full.
