ProForma Lite: Can you use "Add Other..." with a Linked Jira Field?

Is that possible?  Thanks!

Hi @Chris Dukes - I don't believe Jira supports that field type ("Other" with the option to type in your own answer), so at the moment ProForma can't link choice fields with the "Add Other" option.

One workaround is to use a conditional section in ProForma that only shows when a user selects the "Other" option from a choice question. The conditional section can then include a simple text box to capture the "Other" answer. 

That will still leave you a bit short b/c ProForma can't link two fields to one Jira field. There may be a way to script changes to the Jira field based on how your users answer the questions.

Thanks for the detailed reply, Pete!  I'll give the additional box and scripting a shot.

No worries, @Chris Dukes - let me know how you get on with it or you can ping the ProForma support crew here. There's a lot of form building expertise on the team.
