Question: Autocomplete block

Rafaela Basso Updated by Rafaela Basso

For Landbot (Web)

If you have a lot of options users can pick from, try this question type that filters among the possibilities as your visitors start typing!

  1. First, drag and drop the green dot and type in "Autocomplete" to create this type of question.
  2. You'll see a menu where you can add text, format it, and customise the variable name where the answer will be saved (by default @autocomplete), right at the bottom:
    There, start adding as many buttons as you need by clicking on Add another button.

  1. When visitors click in the text area, they'll see the first 5 options in the list, but they can scroll down to see more.
  2. As they start typing, landbot will filter the results and, when they press Enter, it will send the highlighted option from the drop-down.
