    i'd like to update option lists for several questions from one upload

    Asked by fletch63 on January 28, 2017 at 11:35 AM

    I have a long list of song options in a form designed to create a playlist

    I do this with several identcal questions (e.g. pick 1st song; pick second song; etc.)

    This means that when a new song gets added to the repertoire i need to update the options list in every question

    is there any way to make it so that i can do one update for all relevant questions?

    I would like to apologize, I'm afraid we don't have such feature wherein if you update the option(s) in one drop-down, radio button, and/or checkbox field all the other relevant field's option(s) will also be updated. There might be a workaround where you can update the first field and duplicate it to create the others, however, this would mean that you will need to delete the original fields and this might cause an issue with the submission data and conditions associated with the fields. Having said that I would suggest you do the most effective and precise way which is a manual update for each field.
