I have a form that uses several lookup columns with associated tables.
When I configure the layout, it lets me allow people to add new phrases to the look up table. For example: how many languages do you speak? - choose from the dropdown menu. Spanish and Italian. If there is no Italian, people can actually write italian and add it to the look-up table.
However, when I publish the form, people are not allowed to add new lines to the look-up table. It is annoying.
I would like to be able to allow people to add new lines in their form, so that interaction is much more fluid.
Yes, very much want the same thing. I have a similar request here. Ability to add/edit sub-table data from a Form
Hello @Pedro_Bernardo_Juan_Celis_Caraballo ,
I think there are a couple of reasons why you can’t do that.
- if a user would be allowed to do what you want, a malevolent user could keep on submitting new entries and pollute your lookup list.
- the way the forms are loaded, don’t allow easy work arounds, because the lookup list becomes static upon loading a form.
If you insist on having new entries, I described a workaround here. You could enhance the work around with admin approval if you would like to do that. Generally speaking, I don’t think it is a good idea to have not-logged-in users making changes to lookup lists in forms
I have a demo doc to show how this is done. Start by making your own copy and see how it’s done and what is possible:
Thank you! It looks like a great idea to bypass the problem.
