Filter forms fields
Ability to filter fields based on other fields in FORMS, as it can be done in dialogs and workflows...
Thank you for your idea!
With upcoming version 7.6, the forms module will support "Multi Column Select Lists". This means:
- Assign multi-column-select-lists to dropdowns
- configure filters between dropdowns
- autofill a dropdown in case filtering leads to only one remaining value
Please let us know if you have further ideas or wishes. Thank you.

The multi-column select lists that we (and our clients) know and love has not reached the forms module yet. Very disappointing. Without this functionality we have to build all sorts of validations into every workflow to catch the fact that users are able to enter garbage data into forms.

The multi-column select lists are now available in store dialogs and workflows (!!) so pushing them out to forms is the last step (hopefully) to have them available application-wide. Adding them to forms would provide consistency across DocuWare as well as making a positive impact on the usefulness of forms.
Plus, one of our existing clients balked at purchasing the forms module specifically because it doesn't have this functionality (they're heavy users of the multi-column select lists in workflow).
