    I need to create and save a custom drop-down question (a few more than 100 options) for use across multiple forms.  Is it possible to do this on JotForm?

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Creating custom drop-down question is possible by using Free Text (HTML). Free Text(HTML) can be found under Power Tools.

    Hope this help.

    Thank you!

    Hi I think you could always use our Dropdown field and then customize it to your needs ,

    I have made this video in order to see the process

    Should you have more questions, let us know

    Thanks, Jeanette.

    Is there a way to save the list for insertion into future (different) forms? The list is common to my company.  In JotForm terms I believe this is a "special" list.  I want to create my own, save it, and insert it quickly in future forms.

    It is time-consuming to create a 100+ item each time I create a new form.  I was able to do this task in another form builder, which we recently switched from.

     

    Thanks for your support,

    If you noticed on the video, it is a matter of just clicking on the options button of the tool bar, select and delete the options by default.

    Then , you can select the list  of 100+  items and then paste it into another form, by clicking again on the Options button

    Here I leave you another video I have made as a sample, in order to accomplish what you are looking for

    If you do not wish to do that, the other suggestion would be to clone the form where the list is saved and then customize it

    Cheers!
