Is there a way to set the input view of a dropdown menu before it's selected?

    There are plenty of options to pre-fill input boxes. I would like my input tables to be prefilled with the title of the row they are in. Is this a possibility? There is a HOVER option but im not sure how that works with a mobile device because there is no mouse to hover.

    Fo example. I have mult input tables with timeslots as the row titles and I would like the 2 empty columns that follow those to say 7:30 until they are selected and changed.

    Hello, Kirby!

    Thank you for contacting support.

    Yes, it is possible with dropdowns. It can only be done with input tables with short text fields as their slots. Then you can use a simple condition to prefill the fields based on a field that's always selected (e.g., an email field):

    1638046421_61a29ad5dd0ae_

    Here is how it looks like on the form:

    https://form.jotform.com/213305628204043.

    Alternatively, you can use URL parameters to make the fields prefilled:

    https://form.jotform.com/213305628204043?q7_test7[0][0]=7:30&q7_test7[1][0]=8:00.

    This would work with the dropdowns.

    Please give it a try and let us know how it goes.
