Now, you need to set up the options that your user will be able to choose from. You can do this by specifying the options manually or by loading the options.

  1. Scroll down and click on the Add an Option button

  2. Add Options

To load the options, follow the steps:

  1. Click on the Load Options

  2. Choose the resource and collection that you want to load options from
