    Dropdown Options Based on User Inputs

    Asked by buildawill on July 05, 2017 at 11:23 AM



    I have a form where a user can enter in names into text fields.  Later in the form, I want to be able to use the inputs from the users as dropdown options.  For example, user provides the names John Smith, Joe Anderson, and Jane Doe, into separate name text boxes.  Later in the form, the user could select one of the three names from a dropdown list.  


    Is this possible?  Thank you!!!
