    Hi Harvey,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. Unfortunately, our Spanish Support agents are busy helping other Jotform users at the moment. I'll try to help you in English using Google Translate, but you can reply in whichever language you feel comfortable using. Or, if you'd rather have support in Spanish , let us know and we can have them do that. But, keep in mind that you'd have to wait until they're available again.

    Can you explain a bit more about your feedback so I can get a better idea of what you're trying to do? Do you want to add the same widget to your form? Or perhaps you want to clone the form you showed in your screenshot?

    If you want to use the same widget, you can do so and let me walk you through it:

    1. In Form Builder, click on the Add Form Element button
    2. Click on the Widgets tab
    3. In the search field, search for 'Cities of Netherlands'

    4. Drag it into your form and that's it

    If you want to clone the form, you easily do so by following the steps below:

    1. Login to your Jotform account and click on Create Form
    2. Select Import Form from the options then select From a web page.
    3. Under the options, type or insert the form URL that needs to be cloned.
    4. Click on Create Form button.
    5. Afterward, the user will be redirected to the Form Builder to start working on the newly cloned form.

    Hi Billy

    Thanks for your reply

    Now to be more precise, I want the "Cities of Netherlands" widget to let me edit the States and cities of Netherlands and change them to States and cities of Colombia

    Hi Harvey,

    Thanks for getting back to us. Unfortunately, it's not possible to edit the predefined widget properties, but instead, you can use the basic Dropdown element and define its options as you wish. Let me show you how:

    • First, go and find the states and cities of Colombia. Then you can use this tool to split all the elements with line breaks, and the text will be ready to use in the Dropdown element. 
    • Now open your form in Form Builder, and drag and drop a Dropdown element onto your form under the Basic tab in the Form Elements menu.
    • Click on Edit Options, and paste your list into the Options box.

    You can create two dropdowns for Countries and States/Departments, and shrink them to display them side by side. Here's how:

    • In the same Dropdown Properties menu, go to the Advanced tab.
    • Toggle Shrink to the ON position. Once you've shrank both of the fields, they will align side by side.

    You can check out my clone form here and clone it if you'd like to see my configuration better.

    Give it at try and let us know how it goes.
