The List field allows you to create a dropdown list by entering single or multiple pre-defined items. This helps streamline data entry for your users in the field, who can simply select an item from a list, instead of having to type it manually.
How to Create a List Selector
- In the Form Builder, add a List field to your form.
- Select Add List Items.
- Enter an item under the Name column and click Add. Repeat to complete your list.
- Click OK when finished.
The List field also supports list filtering, as well, if you are looking to filter a list made by another list selection.
1) What is the Name in a list?
The Name is what is shown/displayed in the apps. This does not have to be the same as the value, although it is set this way by default.
2) What is the Value?
The Value is what is shown on the reports. They would not be the same in many instances, most often used with calculations to automatically calculate different fields in your form.
3) What is the Filter Key?
The Filter Key is used to filter your list based on another list
4) What is the Score?
This is also used in calculations. You can assign a numerical score to a list selection. For example, if you have a product price list, you can assign numeric values to your products, pull those into a calculation field to use for calculations, etc.
