What is an Option List?
An option list is just what it sounds like; a list of options the user can choose from when collecting data.
What size images should I use for my options?
The size of the image you should use for your options depends on the type of element you are using for your Image Option Lists.
- For the Pick List element and the Multi-Select element, the size of the images should be 48x48px.
- For the Select element, images should be 120x120px.
How do I add images to my Option List options?

STEP 2. Click the Option Lists icon.
STEP 3. Search for your Option List then select it.

The URL scheme used in the example is the scheme that must be used. For Box accounts, the URL scheme would be box://iformpics and for other publicly hosted images, it would be similar to https://myserver/iformpics.
STEP 6. Save your images to your Dropbox folder. In this example, the Dropbox folder name is iformpics.
PLEASE NOTE: The images should always be saved as a PNG file and should be named to match the key value of the options as shown in the example below.
STEP 7. Attach the Option List to your form and test on your device.
