    Need ability to Pull data from existing table to a drop down form field.

    i.e. You have a table of employees

    • You add and subtract employees from the table
    • Forms that require the user to "select applicable employees" pulls from that table.

    i.e. You have an inventory list

    • Your form asks you to choose which inventory items you plan to use
    • The from allows you to choose multiple inventory numbers from an existing table.

    This is a core function of a database software. The ability to "pull form a database". I'd like to move our company from AirTable to Jotform, but this is an absolute necessity for us to do that.

    Hello there,

    Unfortunately, at the moment, that can't be done. If you wish I can forward your suggestion as missing feature to our back-end team.
