    I have been looking for something like this! Will this work with the widgets? How do I get the field variable for checklist in dropdown

    Hello mybackcracker,

    You can take advantage of our "Update a form field value" condition to populate a text box with value of another field. Please check the following guide which should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/286-How-to-Populate-Field-with-a-Value-from-another-Field 

    Yes it will work for checklist widgets too but the value will not be exact same as you see in the checklist options. Please check the screenshot below for a sample checklist widget output in a text box:


    Hope this answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
