    I have 2 lists of multiple choice answers, 1st (visible) is shortened versions for the second list(hidden).

    List 1 = A, B, C, D

    List 2 = Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta


    When any of List 1 is chosen, I want to mirror the choice to list 2, example= if A,C is chosen in List 1, Alpha and Charlie would be chosen in List 2.

    Doing quick research it looks like only way this is possible if the options for list 1 and 2 are identical. Is there a way around this?

    I don't think this is possible. If the options of the fields are the same, it can be copied through conditions. Let me run few tests at my free time and get back to you if I can get you any workaround.

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the delay in responding back. I have tried testing your requirement and was able to achieve it by setting two conditions.

    Here One and Two are the multiple choice fields. The first multiple choice field is assigned with the calculation values that are the options in the second multiple choice. When any option is selected on the first multiple choice field, the calculation value is copied to the Text box field. The same text box field is copied again to the second multiple choice field using the second condition. Please see the demo form below:

    Please check and let us know if that works. Thanks!
