    Hello,

    I'm not sure whether I reported this before ...

    The Auto-complete widget (which I love) seems to have a conditions bug.

    Specifically, you cannot copy the contents of one auto-complete widget into another.

    Now you can copy the contents of an auto-complete into a short text field.

    Please check out the testable form which I have linked below and let me know if I am doing something wrong =)

    Regards,

    LD

    It is not possible to pass a value or option to your auto-complete widget using conditions.

    This is true to all dropdown fields, it is not possible to be populated with condition.

    You may only populate a dropdown field when using the Spreadsheet to form widget.

    Hope this information helps.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.

    Thanks Richie,

    I would suggest that the developers disable this condition for the auto complete widget.

    I have forwarded a feature request to  our developers allow conditions to populate the options in your auto-complete widget.

    Do note that we cannot give an ETA when this feature would be added or will be passed. However, we will keep you posted via this thread for updates.
