    Hi there,

    I want a user of my form to be able to enter Text in the add options Widget. I want the values entered from the add options widget to be available as values in a dropdown in the Configurable list widget.


    Add options Widget Values:

    red, blue, green

    Configurable List widget (contains a dropdown and user fillable text field)

    Color | Shade

    *red* light

    *green* dark

    How can I send the data from the one widget to the other in my form? Thank you.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible. You can pass data from one widget to another. You cannot do it either with our basic dropdown fields.

    What is your goal here, if you don't mind us asking? Are you trying to display different options based on the first input?

    The user is able to choose how many rows of data they want to enter. The first column also contains repeat values, so I don't want the user to have to type in values or have to copy/paste every time. — It seems that your requirement needs a composite field like configurable list which is not possible to receive a data from another field.

    You can pass data from one field to another, but it won't allow your users to add as many entries as they like similar with how configurable list widget work.

    Sorry, but we don't have a way to copy the values especially from widgets to another widgets.
