    How do I change the options in the drop down box in a matrix table field

    Asked by g_ellis on June 30, 2016 at 06:57 PM

    I have a form with a matrix and dropdown box options that I had previously changed the options in (instead of Yes/No I had Tuesday/Thursday) I would like to change these options and add to them but I can no longer find how to do it with the new matrix properties design.

    You can do it using the old UI of the Form Builder

    To access the old UI, append &old=true to the URL when you are updating the form in the Form Builder.



    Use this link when you are in the Form Builder


    When in the old UI, edit the Matrix table properties. You can then change the options for the Dropdown input in the Matrix.

    Let us know if this did not work for you.

    By the way, once you close your browser and then login back to JotForm, the new UI should be available again on the Form Builder.

    So no need to worry about how to switch back to the newer version of the Form Builder interface.
