    How to copy from one drop down menu to another drop down menu?

    Asked by Troop69 on April 17, 2016 at 11:49 PM

    Hi,

    I have two drop down menus. If I select "A" from the 1st drop down menu, it should automatically display "A" in the second drop down menu(which is also an option under it). 

    Greatly appreciate your help,

    Thanks!

    Hello Troop69,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to select an option of second dropdown based on the answer of first question. Is that correct?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement by taking advantage of our conditions feature. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Please take a look at the following cloned form where I have added the condition and see if this works as expected:  https://form.jotform.com/61080671187961

    Thanks Ashwin! Our requirement is: Only if I select "A" from drop down menu-1, drop down menu-2 should automatically show "A". If I select any other values like "B" or "C", it should be left as it is. I tried to set the condition with the update/calculate field. I am not able to copy from Drop down menu-1 to drop down menu-2. I could do it from Drop down menu to a text box.

    Appreciate your help,

    Devi.

    Hello Devi,

    In that case also you just need to edit the condition to check if the value matches instead of check if it is filled. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Hope this helps.
