Multiple Choice Drop down list


I would like to create a custom field with a drop down list where you can pick more than one option.

Something like the version multipicker would work be great.

Is tha possible?

1 answer

Yes, the custom field type is called Multi select list ( or you can use Multi Check Boxes as well)

I don't believe that one is a drop down.

I think that "Select List (multiple choices)" is your best choice

Multi Select List is. As a user I prefer mutli check boxes since I don't have to use the ctrl key for selecting several values.

Hi Udo--I don't have that type. Do you know how I can get it?

Sorry, the correct name is as Peter mentioned "Select List (multiple choices)"

I do appreciate your help but the select list(multiple choices) for me is not a dropdown. It is a box with multiple lines. :(

... and the lines "drop down" once you click on the field ... Sorry, that we could not help.

Thanks for trying.
