    Also, it would be really cool if we had something like the "First & Last Name" element but one that we could pre load a list of our members, and thus would auto-populate their names as they type. Or a drop-down menu, in which you could type to narrow down results. If you have a solution for this, I would love to know.

    You can use the AUto-complete widget to add this feature in your Form.

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/autocomp

    The auto-complete field provides suggestions while you type into the field. This will ease the process of filling out a form.

    If you have a dropdown list of more than 100 entries, the dropdown becomes unusable for the users. So, it is recommended to use an autocomplete field in such a case.

    Let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks.
