    Sorry, but this is currently not doable from within the form builder. You may, however, customize the form codes so you can do pretty much whatever you want, including setting a dropdown option value different to the option name.


    Modifying the form's source codes means you will have to embed them onto a page on your own site.

    Please feel free to contact us again should you need further help.
