I set questions as required fields but the dropdowns, etc. all prepop with the first answer in the list. How do I set a form up to require the user to select an answer from the drop down rather than the "required" requirement being satisfied because the answer populates with the first answer available in the drop down? I have all these fields set as "required." I'm trying to force the form submitter to select an answer not just skip it and submit. Setting it to required doesnt seem to do the trick.

Thanks,
Troy

Troy,

When specifying the answers for the drop down, create an extra one as the first choice, and leave it blank. This should do the trick. For example, say I want a dropdown to have the potential answers: yes/no. I would create the dropdown with 3 possibilites, leaving the first choice blank, and the next two yes and no.

Thanks,
