Dynamic dropdown options

Make the dropdown field options able to be determined by rules.

IF variable1 = 'x' THEN dropdown options = 'a,b,c'
IF variable1 = 'y' THEN dropdown options = 'd,e,f'

    I have tried dynamic dropdown based on rules, but when the number of rules on the form grows, the response time begins to grow and the lag in form rendering can take 5 to 10 seconds which is not good enough.

    We need these dynamic dropdown menus and I'm looking into Nintex form plugins to achieve this feature.

    Hello, I am not sure if this is still an issue. It is possible to have dynamic dropdown control based on rules. See video attached. I have selected radio buttons but you can also use it for dropdown choice control.

    I see this as a must have in a Form builder, something all other forms builders have. We have a workaround prior to any in built solution.

    This would be super helpful in a form I am building right now to replace an InfoPath form. Page one has a repeater for staff assigned, then there are approximately 20 other staff lookups in the form that all will only be the staff initially assigned. The InfoPath form allowed the dropdown list to be filtered by the staff selected in the first section, and I am sure it is going to be one of the first things the users complain about.
