Edit Dropdown Choice X Days After Page is Made

I am attempting to edit a Confiforms Dropdown Field’s selected Option automatically several days after the page that the form is on has been created. So for example, 5 days after the page is created, the drop down option is changed from A to B automatically. Is it possible to define this through a formula in the Field Definition somehow?

Generally changing the options in the dropdown field (and especially removing) after you have entered some data is a very bad practice. 

As exiting rows will be broken in a sense that they will still be referencing the options that you have removed

If you want to "remove" the options from a dropdown I suggest to use a ConfiForms Field Definition rule with action "Apply filter on field" to remove the options you dont want your users to choose anymore


Sorry I should’ve been more clear, I’m not looking to remove options from the drop down, I’m looking to change the selection of all of the records in the table for that drop down. So 5 days after the page is created, every record - regardless of what the drop down selection originally was - will change (or just stay the same if the record already had that value). So for instance if the drop down has options A, B, and C and the table has a mix of all three, days later this rule will change every record to B.

There is no scheduler in ConfiForms that can do it for you, but there is a REST API you can use to do something like this (but it needs to be scheduled elsewhere)
