Are multiple select from drop down menus found in Forms available?

Hello, we want to allow users to select multiple hardware items when ordering hardware from the portal menu using a form.  When building the form menu options, we find multiple hardware items can be chosen only from lists.  Instead, we'd like to use a drop-down menu to avoid having such long-form for the user to scroll through.  

What is the best method for allowing users to select multiple items from a drop-down menu on a form?  The form is set up as a request type.


Thank you

In the form creating, you can use "Multiselect dropdown" option to set this upScreen Shot 2022-05-02 at 10.43.14 AM.png

@jbolton  As an alternative, try add-on Forms and Checklists for Jira Cloud, developed by my team. 

The main features of Forms & Checklists for Jira include:

  • creation of forms for all Jira projects with easy dropdown menu
  • automatic or manual adding of issues and projects of various types
  • adding acting items to create a checklist
  • external forms, that can be used for Service Management projects
  • multiple-forms


Thank you for pointing out this standard functionality.
