Drop Down Selector


I have a drop down selector, how would I select a certain drop down item from the list? I am also filling out some info on the page so do I use “Identity” for this or is there a way to work it into the actual login that I have saved??


I assume that the first part of your question is about using autofill to pick a value from a dropdown menu on a web form? Are you already familiar with custom fields and how to find the name of the custom field? It will depend on how the dropdown selector has been coded. If it is using the HTML <select> element, then you can try using the value that has been set for the desired <option> (you will have to inspect the HTML source code to find this). If you are able to share the specific website that you are trying to make this work for, we may be able to provide more detailed advice.

For the second part of the question, more information is also needed (including a website URL, if possible). Yes, you can define an Identity item to hold information such as a name, address, telephone number, etc., and then autofill by opening the browser extension and clicking on the “card” for the identity that was defined. These Identity items are not linked to Login items. Depending on your use-case, it may be more effective to define a set of custom fields within your Login item, so that the username, password, name, address, etc. all get autofilled at the same time.

Thank you for the help. Is there anyway to put a short pause when filling things out? There is an option I need to select and then it populates some other items that need to be filled out. Right now the way it is set up is that the auto fill is too fast. Any solutions for this?

If you are doing the selection manually, then you should manually trigger the autofill instead of (or in addition to) having the autofill automatically triggered on page load. The most convenient way to trigger the autofill manually is to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+L. You can optionally edit the item to disable autofill on page load.

If the option that you need to select is one that you are automatically selecting using the method I had suggested in my previous post, then the only thing I can suggest is to autofill twice — each time, it will autofill the fields that are currently available. This approach will work best if you only have a single vault item that matches the website URL (otherwise, repeating the autofill using Ctrl+Shift+L will cycle through each set of saved credentials).
