Imagine the following situation:

In your form, you want the user to be able to select the country, state and city, as in this example:

Chile> Metropolitan Region> Santiago or

Chile> Metropolitan Region> Valparaíso.

In this case, we recommend creating a Custom List with all the options that you can select and use the magnifying glass in the application to generate an automatic filter.

Below you will find the details:

  1. Create a Custom List with all possible answer options in the "Name" field. Example:

Chile - Metropolitan Region - Santiago

Chile - Metropolitan Region - Valparaíso

Metropolitan Region of Chile - Viña del Mar



  • to maintain the exact format of the Platform Excel Example

  • that the Name and Code fields must contain unique values

  • that the list name will be the name of your sheet (not the file's name).

4. When accessing the form from the application, use the magnifying glass to write part of the name of the element you are looking for in the filter. The application will automatically show only the options that contain this name or part of it, as in the following example ("Metropolitan Region"):
