The Option List field lets you add multiple-choice answer selections for a specific question on your form. You can require single selections or allow multiple selections per list.
For example, let's say you're creating a customer satisfaction survey that asks respondents to rate their overall experience. Instead of having respondents manually type their response, you can add an Option List to provide a multiple-choice list of pre-defined rating options for users to choose from (e.g., Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor).
The Options List saves time and reduces errors because users don't have to type out their answers. Plus, it ensures that all responses are consistent, which makes analyzing the data easier and more accurate.

- In the Form Builder, select Option List from the Add Fields menu on the left to add it to your form.
