Auto-fill the Select fields & save time

Select Autocomplete is a JetFormBuilder addon that suggests possible options matching the input to the Select field type. Can be applied to any frontend form yet only to Select fields.

The addon’s type-ahead search behavior is complimented by loading options via AJAX.

Each time a request is made to the server, and that allows you to receive up-to-date data. For busy sites, it’s a win-win. Select Autocomplete can be used for Shipping and Billing forms, order submission, booking forms, and many more.
