    Dropdown Form Fields: How to not show options that were previously selected

    Asked by robertbalfour on December 14, 2012 at 09:34 AM

    When using a drop down list is it possible to remove an entry when a person has selected their option? Thus leaving the balance of teh options for the next person to select from, and so forth?

    Dropdown list or any other field cannot be modified that way , the scenario you propose involves a dynamic change into the form which is not possible.

    A more ellaborated programming task made by a skilled programmer will get the desired effect you are looking for, but this must be accomplished out of Jotform, using the source code of the form
