    Hi again. I would like to know if a Jotform for could be fed by an external app, for example Airtable. 

    Let's say that I design a form with a dropdown menu. Let's say also that I have a table in Airtable with a list of products. My idea is that the dropdown options would be fed by my list of products in Airtable (or any other integration if you recommend it). If for example I delete or add a new product in this table, the options would be automatically updated in my form. 

    The question is it possible? If not with Airtable... Is there some other option to do it? I know it could be done simply editing the form, but it could be more useful in this way and the possibilities would be much interesting. 

    Thanks in advance for your answer, I will be waiting

    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience. However, the feature you are looking for is not available with our forms. Getting data from another source into the form is not possible.

    However, a workaround is to embed your form on a website using its Full Source Code and programmatically add the options from another source there.
