How do I enable this functionality?
After installing and activating Gravity Forms Limit Choices, limits become available in any supported choice-based field. Let’s step through that process.
If a choice reaches its specified limit it will no longer appear in the field on the front-end. While the choice is visually removed from the front end, it is still editable via the Form Editor so the limit may be adjusted.
The number of choices in the Form Editor represents the total number of choices available and will not update as entries are submitted. Adjustments to the number of available should be set to the maximum number you want to make available. For example, if you initially set the the maximum number to
10, and you want to make 2 more available, set the number to
Product and Option Fields
If a limit is applied to choices in a Product or Option field and there is a Quantity field associated with that Product field, the quantity ordered will be counted towards the limit.
The remaining number of choices left can be used to trigger conditional logic. Once limits are enabled for a field, the (Remaining) condition becomes available in the field drop down within the conditional logic rules. Use this to show or hide a field if the number of remaining choices is above or below a certain level.
Can I display the number of choices left?

How do I disable exhausted choices rather than remove them?

How about not disabling exhausted choices at all?
If you don’t want to disable exhausted choices for any particular reason (like using them for conditional logic), then use the gplc_disable_choices hook.
Can I set a daily limit?
Absolutely. Use this this snippet to reset limits daily.
