    Hello,

    I have a matrix table that I have set the input value as a drop-down. What the user will do is in the first field, select a name from the drop-down list. In the next field in the matrix, they will repeat this process, but I would like them to not be able to choose the previously chosen option because they already chose it in the previous field.

    Essentially, if I have one column and 10 rows in a matrix table, and in the first row the user selects the name "Bob" from the drop-down list of names, when they move to row 2 of the matrix table, and they use the drop-down for this row, "Bob" will not be an option to select because "Bob" was already selected/input into the row above.

    I'm sorry, but this isn't possible in the Input Table field. I find no workaround either. The closest tool we have that you can use is the asmSelect widget (https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/asmselect). 

    I will also submit a request for this feature to our backend team. Unfortunately, we cannot give you an estimate as to when this feature will get implemented or if our developers will consider adding them in the future, but as soon as we have an update, we will let you know through this thread.
