    Ability to populate dropdown fields with values from spreadsheet

    Asked by ExplorationSociety on September 20, 2016 at 10:33 AM
    also like to be able to use this feature for use in creating a payroll for freelance staff. I want to update the events so that requests for payment are matched to event codes. Updating the jot form manually every time we add a new event is a pain.

    Unfortunately we do not currently have the ability to import data from a spreadsheet to your form fields.  We do have a tool to prepopulate fields:

    Field Prepopulator (http://prepopulate.jotform.io/)

    However this will not allow you to populate a list of selections, it will only allow you to fill in blank fields.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with and we will be happy to do so.
