The product could be a plugin or widget that allows users to create dynamic dropdown menus for single select questions in forms. Instead of a static list of options, the menu would display different options based on the user's previous selections or inputs.

For example, let's say you were filling out a form to order a custom pizza. The first question might ask you to select a crust type (thin, thick, gluten-free, etc.). Once you select a crust type, the dropdown menu for the next question (e.g. sauce options) would dynamically update to display only the sauces that are available for the selected crust type.

The same logic could be applied to a variety of form types, such as surveys, job applications, or product order forms. The product could be customizable to allow users to set up their own rules for dynamic option selection based on their specific form needs.

Overall, this product could improve the user experience by making forms more interactive and efficient, while also reducing the likelihood of user error by only displaying relevant options.

Totally agree with you 100%! This has been one of the top feature requests that Airtable users have been requesting for almost a decade now.

Fortunately, Fillout has come to the rescue for all of us. Fillout is now the most advanced form software for Airtable, and it is 100% free to use. Fillout does dynamic dropdowns like what you are requesting, it offers integrated payments directly on the form by using Stripe, and it offers TONS of other advanced functionality that people have been dreaming of for years in their Airtable forms.
