    How to add an "add option" to auto search box

    Asked by risefit on March 07, 2015 at 10:29 AM
    Hi Ben 
    The auto search is great, if you can add the ability to make it so user can add to the list so the list can grow as more users sign in.
    So i created original list of people
    people use the auto search to find their name and sing in to a class
    new person, Jane Doe, comes to class and she is not in original list of people
    so Jane Doe types in her name and once she hits submit button, her name Jane Doe is added to the original list of people
    Jane Doe come the next day starts typing her name in the search box and it pops up.
    Making the search box dynamic like that.  So that as more people come to my gym and sign in the list keeps growing organically
    Thank you!

    Please check the User Contributed Dropdown Widget. 

    I think the widget is exactly what you had in mind.

    Here is the demo jotform http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43438068244962? where you can test to search and add on the list itself.

    Please let us know if this will not work for you.
