    Hello mdhommati,

    Unfortunately, it will not be possible to add labels for other dropdowns of the "Dynamic Dropdown" widget. 

    In that can you can add multiple dropdown question in your form and show/hide them based on the value of one dropdown. You can take advantage of our "Conditions" feature to achieve your requirement.

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this is something which you want to achieve:  http://form.jotform.me/form/40201981731447? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hello mdhommati,

    Here are the steps you shoud follow to achieve your requirement:

    1. Add a dropdown field to list the technology.

    2. Add one dropdown field for every technology you have mentioned in the above dropdown.

    3. Add condition to show / hide dropdown based on the value of first dropdown field.

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this works for you:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41243354754958? In this form, I have added dropdown field and condition for 3 microsoft courses. Feel free to clone this form and add further dropdowns based on your requirements.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
