    Unfortunately, this is not currently.

    Please confirm that you are referring to the 'Spreadsheet to form' widget so we will be able to escalate a feature request ticket to our developers.

    Hello,
    I'm actually referring to Autocomplete widget
    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autocomp
    It has a box where I can add Items
    [image: Tekstisisene pilt 1]
    Instead of this box I would like to fetch the list from a spreadsheet (like
    Spreadsheet to forms widget).
    usercase would be:
    user types name of an item and it automatically offers a correct name for
    the item from the source list.
    Problem with just a entry box is that there could be different spelling or
    naming for the same item (from user)
    Problem with check box is that if the list is long, it's hard to manage by
    user.
    Problem with autocomplete is that it is difficult to manage the list by
    admin
    I hope it makes sense.
