    Unfortunately, it is not possible to insert items to a dropdown box on the forms. However, as a workaround you may have separate dropdowns for each selection and show/hide them based on the selection made on Checkboxes.

    Alternatively, you may also consider using Dynamic Dropdown widget that might help you with this scenario. However, you'll need to replace the checkbox options to the parent options in the widget.

    Hope this information helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks!
