    Is it possible that in the fields with items only one can be selected obligatorily and does not allow to send something that does not appear in the list of items?

    If the user writes the true answer, the user can submit the form. You try to use condition for each item as you can see below:

    Also, if you want that the user selects just one option and the user has to select in the list, you can use dropdown field as you can see below:

    If you need any help, let us know.

    Thank you,

    solution 1: the solution is not optimal because we would have to create 74 more conditions.

    solution 2: this solution creates a list with too many options to search among them

    There is no other way?

    Unfortunately, there is no workaround at this moment to lock the entry to match the item in the list. Let me forward this thread to our backend team as a feature request to evaluate the option to validate the entry from the list. Please be noted that we cannot promise that the feature shall be implemented or cannot provide any ETA for implementation if accepted at this moment. If there is any news, we will be updating you on this thread.

    Thank you!
