    Can I import the selections for a dropdown box?

    Asked by lisamerrill on April 04, 2017 at 11:23 AM


    I'd like to build a product sample order form for our offsite sales reps.  They need to be able to select a product from a list of over 200 choices.  Can I import the list of choices?  Can I periodically refresh the list of choices available.  I could put the list of choices in a Google sheet, Excel, csv or text

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to import a list from an Excel, CSV or text file to the drop down options. However, you can copy the value from an external file and paste it in the "Options" field of the Drop down properties.

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
