Limit RSVPs or close RSVP block

The RSVP block that can be added to emails for upcoming events makes things so easy, I love it! Previously, our employees were asked to call or email a specific person, but this year we added in this RSVP online feature and have had to chase less people down for their answer; amazing! My only complaint, which I believe to be very valid and relevant, is that a cut-off date and message cannot be added to the back end of the form. Our catering numbers are due a week in advance, so everybody that RSVP'd after the date, I have to personally reach out to and let them know if we can fit them in or not. Which also means I have to check the RSVP report every single day to see if new ones came in.

Status changed to: Voting Open

The RSVP Block has definitely opened a lot of new abilities for our users and I'm so glad it's made things easier for you. Being able to add a cut-off date and notice would be a great feature and I've gone ahead and opened this suggestion up for voting. Thanks for the suggestion, @csrhs1869!

We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request but should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration for a future release.


Is there a way to turn off RSVPs once a certain number of people have RSVPd? Ex: We would like to close RSVPs at 30 seats with a pop-up that says, "All seats have been filled. Click here to be added to the waitlist." 


I agree that an RSVP end date would be very useful (and seems simple to implement).


It would be great to be able to add a number of guests to the RSVP block instead of having to use the "event" option.
