What is the PlatoForms Searchable Dropdown feature?

A Searchable Dropdown, also called a “Searchable Select” is a user interface element that combines the functionality of a dropdown list with the ability to search and filter its options. It offers a more efficient and user-friendly way to select an item from a long list of choices. 

Benefits of Searchable Dropdown feature

Now that you can add a searchable dropdown to your online PDF forms, you are now letting them experience the following benefits:

Improved experience

Using a Searchable Dropdown to your PDF forms improves the user experience by reducing frustration and cognitive load. Your users don’t have to rely solely on manual scanning to locate their desired option. The search functionality also provides a more intuitive and user-friendly way to interact with dropdown menus.

Hassle-free navigation

The searchable dropdown option allows your users to quickly and easily find the desired option from a large set of choices. Instead of spending hours scrolling through a long list, users can simply type a few characters and get instant search results. This saves time and effort, especially when the dropdown contains numerous options.

Increased Accuracy

With the help of a searchable dropdown, they are more likely to select the correct option because they can search for specific keywords or attributes related to the item they’re looking for.
