    Can results collected from one form automatically fill in drop down lists used on another form.

    Asked by xero2015 on April 16, 2015 at 01:28 AM

    I'm looking to collect new seller details (name only) on one form,  but then need the result added to a drop down list  in another form.  Prefer to do this automatically (maybe use online storage such as "Drive") 

     

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    You want the result to appear permanently in the next form? Meaning, other users will see that result too? I don't think this is possible, a closer workaround would be to use our User Contributed Dropdown widget:

    Kindly check and let us know for questions.

    Thanks

    By the way, in general, populating a dropdown field from a textbox field from another form is not possible. I just tried it. You can possibly do this using the same field, textbox field. Let me know if this is what you want.

    Thanks
