A Drop Down field can be used to present a longer list of options to applicant and require they only choose one of those options. It is similar to a Radio Field but is more suitable for questions that have a lot of potential values to choose from so as to take up less space on the submission form.

To add a Drop Down field to your submission form, click the Drop Down button on the left side panel of the form builder.

You can set the field values by clicking the + and x symbols next to the field value option. You can also click Bulk Add to add many options all at once.

Pre-fill with US States, Canadian Provinces, or Countries

Click Pre-fill option and choose if you want to pre-fill this field with US States, Canada Provinces, Countries, or both US States and Canada Provinces together.

Dependent Fields

With a drop down field, you can set your option values. Each option value will have a 'link' icon to the left that you can click. Another form builder will appear and you can create your new set of questions. You can even chain these dependent fields and go down a tree of questions.
