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?

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.
