    User Contributed Dropdown widget: Ability to import and export the options to Excel

    Asked by CNSTradingLtd on January 26, 2017 at 03:25 PM

    What would be neat would be to have an export feature from the Dropdown widdget. You could then export all the options from each form add them to Excel and use Excel to remove duplicates then Import the result to each Dropdown widget. Then they would all be updated and the same.

    Just a thought but making things easier is what computers are all about.

    I understand that you want to export the options from the widget and then import them back to the widget after removing the duplicates. 

    I am not sure if this can be implemented. However, let me forward the thread as a feature request to our backend team to evaluate the feature. I cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented or provide any ETA at the moment. If there is any update in this regard, you'll be posted here.

    Thank you!
