    On your question is there any condition can I apply to hide some values in the drop down?No It is not possible to hide all / some of the items of dropdown list.

    If you have a long list in the dropdown, you can break it in multiple drop down fields and use the condition logic to show only one.but if you want to show or hide fields according to selection of a dropdown field.

    Then, follow these steps:

    Go to “Setup & Embed” and click "Conditions".

    accessing conditions


    Select SHOW/HIDE option

    conditions wizard


    At  IF declaration, you must choose your dropdown menu :

    On the THEN declaration, choose the field you wish to show only if that conditon is met (otherwise it will be hidden)


    See this example:



    You may also  take a look at our "Widget" sections where we have a lot of drop down options. You can also group your option values in "Grouped Values Dropdown" widget.

    I hope that helps.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
