Dropdown Form Entry

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I want users to enter data via form and one of the fields is a dropdown list and I do not have the restrict list to values selected. I want people to be able to submit new entries via the form but it will not accept any that are not already pre-defined in the dropdown list. 

This seems like a defect to me. People can add new entries in the regular view but not via the form.
