There are cases where you would like to set some entry limits for LinkUps, say 10 entries for a giveaway or 50 volunteers for a project or 500 beta testers.

 

The roughest scenario would be the giveaway of a single product to the one that will enter his link faster than anybody else when the collection opens. Moreover, you could have a collection to gather 30 people that have e.g. the Silhouette but you wouldn’t like to leave it until it fills up but instead, close in one week regardless if the collection is full or not.

All these scenarios can be materialized with the newest feature addition in the InLinkz arsenal of capabilities. You can now set the numerical limit of the links.

 

The limit can be set after you have created a collection.

Click on “edit link-up” link.

The information text mentions now that there is one rule that might close submissions. When time passes. Once it is reached, the collection is automatically closed as usual.

 

Voting and limiting together.

When time passes, the submissions close and no more links can be inserted. Then, the collection stands still until the voting time comes.
