    Field 1,  I have a list of names.  Each name's value is their email address.

    I would like field 2 to populate the email address of the name selected in field 1.

    You can do this by using Conditional Logic. From the SETTINGS menu, select CONDITIONS and then select the UPDATE / CALCULATE FIELD option.


    And create your conditions to populate fields as per required. 

    I have created this demo form for you. You can review/clone it using the following URL:



    For more information on how to use conditional logic, please refer to this guide:
