Populating Field Choices

With Live Population, you can use merge tags in a field’s choices (both label and value) to use the value of other fields.

  1. In the form editor, open the field whose choices you want to populate.
  2. Click the Live Population tab.
  3. Select the Allow merge tags to be replaced in field properties checkbox.
  4. Select the Replace Merge Tags In Field Choices checkbox.

    (Optional) If you want the merge tags to be updated when another field changes, select the field(s) in the Replace Merge Tags When Field Is Changed drop down.

  5. Click the General tab.
  6. Enter in your merge tags in the Choices setting.

    Merge tags can be used in the choice label and value. If you use a merge tag in a choice and the choice is empty after the merge tag has been replaced, it will not be displayed on the form.

    Tip You can add a merge tag using only the field ID: {:2} instead of {My Field:2}
