How do I add a dropdown field to my form?

With ActiveCampaign, you can add dropdown fields to any inline form you create. Doing so allows contacts to choose a single option from a list of choices presented in a pull-down menu. If you want contacts to be able to select more than one answer, use a multi-select list or checkbox field instead.

Take note

Dropdown fields can be added to Inline forms only.
