I have a list with 447 options. It was a huge PITA adding or deleting options before. Dynamic fields now updates them in just a few seconds and I have no fear of typos anymore

Wow, I haven't tried all the options yet but I am amazed! This is what I need for a few of my forms. It would be great if you were able to create a new question where users could submit documents/photos through a Google Form. Keep up the good work!
