    How to have Dropdown list of Names or Email Addresses

    Asked by BardofGodstone on June 14, 2015 at 06:26 PM

    so, I want to create a form that can be completed for me, by other colleagues. 

    so when building the form I need to include a list of names or email addresses. (The submitter name in other words) I'd like users of my form to pick their name from the dropdown list. How is that done?

    It is not really clear how you wanted to do this. Please provide us more details and we will check further.

    From what I got so far, could it be you were trying to achieve the same thing that was described on this user guide: 


    In the user guide, the solution will allow conditional email to be sent base on the selected option. In your case, the option can be the Name/Email address that the end-user will pick from the Dropdown lists selection.

    If the end-user selected a Name/Email from the list, upon submission of the form, the email will be sent to the assigned Name/Email pick by the user.

    Let us know if you need further assistance on this.

    Not sure this answers it. I want the submitter of the form to pick their name from a drop list. When submitted all forms must come to me by default

    Hi BardGodstone,

    If you have the list of name for your users, you would create a drop down field and add the name to the list.

    We also have our User Contributed Dropdown widget, this would allow you to add a list of names to your dropdown and give your users the option to add their names for future use.

    You can view both options on this sample form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51637889798987 

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
