    Is there a way to take a value from a short text box and copy that value to a dropdown box as an "option". Both the short text box and the drop down box are on the same form.

    Thank you for contacting us!

    Unfortunately, after doing some tests, this is not possible at the moment. You can only pass a value from one field to the other using the Text field, Textbox field, Email field, Text area field, and Address field.

    For more information, please visit our guide in passing field value to another field:

    How to Pass Field Value to Another Field?

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Any chance it would be easy to add that as a feature. Or submit a feature
    Taking a value from a short box and using that as an option in a drop down
    box would be a good feature.
    Any feedback would be appreciated.
