    Hi Diego,

    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.

    Now, let me help you with your question. If I understood what you’re asking, you want to prepopulate the options on the Dropdown menu with the data from an external source. Unfortunately, the feature you're looking for isn't available at Jotform right now.

    You can prepopulate the answer on the Dropdown field but it's not possible to prepopulate the options on it. Take note that all Dropdown Widgets are currently static, so it's not possible to prepopulate the options from an external source and the options can only be entered manually.

    Reach out again if you have any other questions.
