Drop-down field (other)

Hi there,

I have created a custom field with a list drop-down options and I wondering if there was a way where the last item on the list could be "Other" and if selected a free text field appears.

You will need to find an App that provides a field type that does that. 

The off-the-shelf fields don't do it, they need admins to set the list.  Apart from the "label" field which is not a drop-down, but does let your users add whatever they want if the suggestions they see don't match what they want to add.

Ok, thanks




They already have, since version 4 - it's the label field

ive created a similar function with the Behaviours feature.

if select value = ‘blah’ then free text field is shown and required.
