    Is it possible to make the drop down "Read-only"? Any other easy workaround?


    thanks!

    I'm sorry, but I'm not sure why would you need to do that since the drop-down field is just selecting the field, I mean you cannot change its options.

    Unless you want to set some option to be set by default and then not changed? But then you don't need a dropdown.

    Let us know if you had something else in mind.

    Thank you!

    Hey Nik,

    Yeah I have an approval flow set up in my form (using "get url" widget). So once the manager approved, I dont want the next person to come change the selections that the manager made in the drop down. 


    Is there any chance to do that with dropdown?

    Thank you for the explanation, yes it is possible since you're using Get form page URL, you can use this condition to make the drop-down disabled  when the submission is edited:
