is there a better multiselect custom field?

Hi there,

i would like to use the multiselect customfield in JIRA (Select List (multiple choices)), but the way it is working annoys me.

If you edit the field, you have to use SHIFT to select multiple values and if you make a mistake your original values are "lost".

I would like to have a mix between the select list and checkboxes, where you have a dropdown in which you can check your options without having to use the SHIFT key or having a long list of values in your edit mask.

Does anybody know if there is a way to have such a customfield or is there an Add-on that has this functionality?

Cheers,

Alex

You can turn the custom field into a field that looks like the multivalue fields for versions. I've done it in the past with JavaScript in the field configuration description for the field. 

I'll see if I can recall how I did it
