    Is it possible to have a shorter question on the form than shows on the results page?

    Asked by Tania  on December 07, 2016 at 01:10 PM

    For example I only want the user to be able to put the first two letters of their postcode in ie: GU but for the results page to show GU - South Central

    I checked our database using the email address you provided and I find out that it is associated to a guest account (guest_63085332982056). This guest account doesn't have a form yet.

    We have a widget that you can use, it is called Autocomplete widget. This widget provides suggestions while you type into the field.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Sorry I used the wrong email - it's bulldogrescue@btinternet.com, but no that doesn't answer my question. I want the results page to show a longer answer generated by what the user puts in. Example

    user puts in    GU

    Results page shows   GU - South Central

    But the user doesn't see the South Central bit

    Hello Tania,

    Actually, that's how it should work, similar to the animated screenshot of Jan. Once the user inputs GU, if you have on the list GU - South Central in the items for words for auto completion, then it should appear there.





    However, if I'm misunderstanding your reply please let us know. It would likewise be great if you can share with us more information on the matter such as the link to the form that you are working on.
