Nope. You have to select the type when you create the field.  1 Type per field.

You can have different values (contexts) for different issue types and projects, but not actual different field types.

Hi Julie - no, that is not possible. It must be one and only one type.

Hi @Julie Sgroi

You can't.  The solution you are looking for is a plugin such as dynamic fields from deviniti where if "other" is selected, a new field with text displays below it.  

Cheers
