Hi, I have a form with 4 fields showing dynamic content.   I would like to remove the selected options in the other fields.   I have used the custom code: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_setup_new_fields_vars/#kb-remove-used-options   However, this only removes the selected options on each field separately. I need it to remove them across the 4 fields.   Can anyone help me with this?   Thank you so much in advance!   here is an example: a972f130-2978-4b34-8d21-31071d418ad0

Hi, Isabelle. Were you able to implement this in FF? It's so frustrating that simple and common features such as this cannot be implemented easily in FF. I recently emailed support on how to apply validation to multi-select fields such that a combination of values cannot be selected together. I couldn't find it in the documentation *sigh*

If you want to remove the selected values in real time, you need to use jQuery. You should also consider showing the removed values again if a user unchecks a previously selected field. There are multiple ways of doing this depending on what you want to achieve. You can either disable selections, hide previous selections with CSS, of remove/add through the DOM. This will give you an idea of what's required: https://www.javascripttutorial.net/javascript-dom/javascript-add-remove-options/.
