Using a dropdown as a conditional?


My QuickBase features a dropdown list that when selected, should automatically fill another field with today's current date.

Is there a way to check if anything has been selected in a dropdown? My best guess is something like this:

If([Dropdown] = TRUE, ...)

However, this throws me an error because the "=" operator cannot be used with textlists.

Any ideas as to how I can work around this?

I appreciate the help!

  • You should use a form rule.

    When multiple conditions are true
    all of
    [Dropdown] is not  (just leave blank)
    [date field] is (just leave blank)

    Change [date field] to the current date.
