    Hi all,

    I'm looking to populate dropdown options based on the answers to a previous question. Can this be done with Jotform?


    Question 1 (Multiple Choice): What languages do you speak?
    Options: a list of languages that I have provided
    Users can select all the languages that they speak.

    Question 2 (Dropdown): Which language do you use to communicate with your family?
    Options: I'd like for this list of options to be the answers to question 1. That way they don't need to navigate through a list of 100+ languages and just need to select from 1-5 languages.

    Any ideas?

    Unfortunately, a dropdown field can not be dynamically populated with options from another field. The dropdown field can only show an option that is already entered in it.

    Should you have any other questions then please let us know.
