We added a branch called "Pets" to the PERSON form. As you can see from the screenshot above, we limit the total number of entries of PERSON to 2 ("Set Limit" checkbox ticked and "Limit To" set to 2). We already uploaded those 2 entries to the server (have a look) so the system will not accept any more entries for the PERSON form.
We did not set any limits to the PHONE NUMBER form. To do that, just DO NOT tick the "Set Limit" checkbox
On the PERSON form, we set a limit to 2 branch entries. This means each PERSON entry can have a maximum of 2 "Pets" branch entries.
If we set a limit on the PHONE NUMBER form, let's say to 5, the system would accept 5 PHONE NUMBER entries per each PERSON, as it validates the total against the hierarchy structure, as usual on Epicollect5.
This is all you need to do. If you set a limit and you already have more entries than the limit set, you will get an error prompt. To see how many entries you have per each form, view the data for that project.
Entries for a project can be deleted at once.
