Is there no easy way to fill a drop down box on a form? Preferably from an excel sheet or so.
Especially the sorting is very time consuming. I want most values in alphabetical order, but not all. So I have to sort them all manually.
What is it you're needing to display in the drop-down list?
Perhaps the Drop Down Select with Web Service form field would help? There's a list of available Web Services that can be found under the Information tab from the UI (Admin > Web Services):
Additionally, these can easily be sorted by column or sorted by direction.
Assuming you are talking about the Request form fields of type "Drop Down Select”. You might consider looking into using "Drop Down Select with Web Service” instead.
This way you can simply update a single file with the ordering you like and that should reflect in your form. Needless to say, please test this first to make sure it works inline with your requirements.
