A little background on what I am trying to achieve.
We have about 4-5 Project Categories. And mostly all project fit into these categories, and occasionally there would be a need to create a new category to fit in a new project.
When a "Create New Project" ticket comes in, the single select list offers them to choose from the already existing categories.
But lately more projects are coming in that need new categories.
For that purpose I want an option of "Other/Suggest new category" in the Single Select List.
And upon selecting that option, there should appear a text box next to it, which would take in the value for newly suggested category.
What we tried and why it didn't work.
We removed our single select list and placed a simple text field in its place (hoping people would just type in already existing category names) and occasionally type in a new category.
But people just seem typed in their own new category every time.
Hence, I would like the option of adding a text field into a single select field.
Many thanks in advance.
There is plugin called Dynamic Forms which contains several dynamic customfields (select, multiselect, cascading select, checkboxes and radiobuttons) which can show/hide other customfields. You can just migrate your select to dynamic select and add related field for option "other/suggest", or you can add new custom field dynamic select.
Here you can find documentation: https://intenso.atlassian.net/wiki/display/DF/Dynamic+Custom+Fields
I hope I've helped you.
