Global List Selector


Global lists provide a way to create a list of values once and re-use it across multiple forms. Global lists are created via file import which makes them particularly useful if you have large lists in your forms.

The Global List Selector field type allows you to reference a global list in your form to allow a user to select single or multiple pre-defined items from the global list. This field type also supports list filtering based on the selected value of another list.
