Submissions: Working With Select One and Select Multiple fields

Sync & Save expands Select One and Select Multiple fields to provide maximum flexibility in handling user input.

  • Select One and Select Multiple fields first appear in the list of form fields and return the underlying value selected by the user:



    If more than one value was selected in a Select Multiple control, then the chosen values are divided by a single space.


  • The same Select One field will appear again further down the list of fields, but this time with all the possible options broken out:



    In this case, the field has underlying value options of "option_1", "option_2", etc.

    Each option is presented in two ways: _Selected contains 1 if the option was selected and 0 if the option was not selected. _Text contains the text visible to the user (not the underlying value) if the option was selected and nothing if the option was not selected.

    The final _Text field contains the text selected by the user (not the underlying value).


  • The Select Multiple field will also appear again further down the list of fields:



    In this case, the field has the underlying value options of "option_a", "option_b", etc.

    The _Selected and _Text values work in the same way as the Select One example above.

    The Select Multiple field also adds _SPText and _SPValue which contain values formatted specifically for SharePoint.
