Can I populate a separate field with a selected dropdown field value?

I have a dropdown field called “Members” with a list of choices and values like this:

  • John Smith|
  • Jane Doe|
  • Editor|

I would like the value of the selected “Members” dropdown choice to “automatically” populate a separate, hidden field on the form.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to do this.

Thank you.

Hi Mark. The Populate Anything plugin from Gravity Wiz can do that with the “Live Merge Tags” features:

Live Merge Tags.
Add auto-updating merge tags anywhere inside your form (e.g. labels, descriptions, choices, values, HTML content).

Without a plugin like that, you would need to create your own JavaScript to copy the value from the dropdown to another field in the form once a selection is made.

Thank you Chris! I’ll look into Populate Anything from Gravity Wiz.

Thanks, Mark. Once you have it, I guarantee you’re going to find a million uses for it! Their support is great, and they stop in here occasionally in the event you need direction that’s not quite a support ticket.
