    Hello,

    I am making a monthly timesheet and would like to know if it is possible to have dropdown fields within an input table have the same functionality as a stand-alone dropdown field. On the standalone dropdown, I am able to have a selection by default where It does not appear this is available in a dropdown in an input table.

    Thanks,

    Blair

    Hello Blair,

    Yes, the drop-down field on the input table does not have the feature of showing a default value, unlike the basic dropdown field.

    You may check this related ticket, where we have suggested a probable workaround: https://www.jotform.com/answers/2526430-how-to-have-a-default-value-in-the-drop-down-column-in-the-input-table

    Do review and let us know if that will help.

    Since your last response was not posted on this ticket, I am adding it here:

    Sorry for the delay though.

    Unfortunately, conditional logic and calculation will not work on the Configurable list widget.

    Your requirement would be best suited with the Input table though. Otherwise, you will need to use multiple separate dropdown and textbox fields with your data.
