Copy cell on form submission

edited 06/28/23 in Formulas and Functions

I need the field to be a dropdown in the form (currently set as one column "options") and a second column "updates" that is a text type to sync with JIRA.

On form submit, I'd like to copy the value selected in "options" column (opt 1, opt 2, opt 3) into the second column "updates". The updates column may have other copy that comes from users in JIRA so it can't be set only to the dropdown values but I would like it copied on form submission to know what the user selected in the dropdown on the form.

I can't set a column formula because of the JIRA sync. I can't figure out how to do this in the form or in workflows. Any suggestions?

    Hi @MistyR

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could set up multiple Workflows with the Change Cell Action, so when a choice is made in the form from the dropdown, it would also populate in the other cell.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
