    Is there a way to update Dropdown Options from Podio/Globiflow?

    Asked by Wpaulino on May 19, 2017 at 10:34 AM


    Is there a way to update Dropdown Options from Podio/Globiflow? We have a list of employees that we want to add/remove items from automatically. Or is there an alternative method for this?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    As I can understand, you need the option on your drop down to be dynamically changed. 

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to achieve it since you cannot set the options from an external resource. If you would like to display the options from an external app or resource you will need to get the source code of your form and add your custom script to display your custom options, otherwise you will need to manually update the options list. 

    This guide will help you getting the source code: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form 

    Hope this helps.
