For dropdowns, is there a way to create options based on prior answers?
So for example:
Question 1 (in form of a textbox): Who is in your team? User will fill in [Name 1], [Name 2], [Name 3]
Question 2 (in form of a dropdown): Who will be team captain? The options will display as [Name 1][Name 2][Name 3], which are derived from what the user filled in for Question 1.
If not, is there a way to do this? (Maybe not in the form of a dropdown but a radio/check button, or something similar)

Yes, it is possible. I would suggest you to use Dynamic Dropdown widget, please check that on below URL:
You can also check the demo form of dynamic dropdown here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43514646570961
So please try it, and and if you have any query, or need further assistance, feel free to revert back.

Thank you for your response.
Hm I don't think this is quite what I'm looking for.
I want to be able to populate my dropdown fields based on an answer that a user gives me in a prior question, and not have to write the options down when creating the survey.
For the dynamic dropdown widget, I need to fill in each dropdown option right now. However, I do not know these options because the user has to give me this information in a prior answer. Is there a way to make it so that the options are based on the user's answer for a prior question?

I'm afraid you can't populate the "options" on the dropdown field based on user input from a previous field. However, I'm currently looking for a way if this is possible. Regardless if I have good or bad news, I'll update this thread as soon as I'm done with my tests. I'll be with you shortly.

Sorry but I wasn't able to find a workaround that will fit your requirement.
- 3 textboxes asking for names of members of the team
- Then a dropdown menu that will be populated based on the names entered on those 3 textboxes
Nonetheless, if you have other concerns, just open a new thread so we can further assist you.
