Submission Element is a very easy to use ZOO Element for creating forms with versatile functions.
Creating forms has never been easier. You can easily create any kind of form you want. With a few clicks you may have a Contact Form, Satisfaction Survey, Reservation Form, Order Form etc.
 
The Submission Element allows you to place a Call to Action button in your ZOO Items. When a visitor clicks on the button, a sleek popup opens with a nice overlay and presents the visitor with a Form. The Element used jQuery UI Dialog Widget for a popup.
 
The Submission Element for ZOO used native for ZOO validation and submission process, added to this is the fact that the form is invisible to Spam Bots, so it eliminates automatic form submissions from your website. The Element is optimized for usability and security.

    Can this component control the number of submissions permitted?

    This is a good start but there is still a lot to do on this element to make it useful in production sites. 1. The element does not allow any relationship to be formed with a submitted or child item so there is no way of tracking what items have been created by a parent item on the parent item (which you can do on the child item using the parent item element) What should have been done is the option to create a related item (to the parent) when submitting and bi-directional relationships e.g. reader submits book and then reader is related to submitted books and books have reader parents. (This relationship functionality is on Zoolanders Related Items Pro Extension which unfortunately doesn't support submitting new items only connecting already created items) 2. There is only 1 view for the submission button itself in submissions that allows you to enter a new email address for the recipient of the submission instead there should have been an option to allow you to show the submit element as a button (like it is full or related view) and therefore allow you to submit multiple types that are related on 1 submission form.
