    Asked by Mario  on August 21, 2015 at 10:17 AM

    Hello, i am using wordpress with the "Ultimate Member" plugin.

    I want to create a form with a dropdown menu that is populated with users from "Ultimate Member" so the visor can choose who he wants to contact.

    Is is even possible to create a form like that?  Thank you in advance for any idea about how to deal with it.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to populate options in fields in your form from an external source.  You would need to manually enter and members in this dropdown list then have your form fields conditionally updated with their data:

    However, there is no way to automate this.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
