Multi Select in custom forms?

It's possible I imagined this - or missed it as a deprecated feature... BUT weren't we able to create either Radio or Checkboxes, field type with the ability to perform a multiselect? I know and see the option in the Drop Down type of field; but it's not an ideal type. John Seitz ESPN

Yes Checkboxes allow multiselect and dropdowns offer the option. But radio button is single selection as far I've known it. Though we're 2.5 years in, so perhaps before my time it was allowable.

It's inherent in the CheckBoxes. I thought it was kind of a GUI standard that radio buttons were single selection, check boxes are multi. But I don't know where I got that from. I might have made it up in my head J . But I do know the checkboxes are multi select. We use them in a bunch of our forms.

Hi John. Yes, I just checked, and when designing a custom form (as SysAdmin), see both the Radio Button and Checkbox options as "droppable" field types...ah; but (on screen refresh -- thanks Dags and Vic) see that your point is about the mulit-select aspect), so yes, confirm that I too do NOT see the "Allow more than one option to be selected" on either of them. It used to be avaialable on Checkboxes; and I expect, will Come Back, once this gets reported. Regards, Doug Doug Den Hoed - AtAppStore

Thanks everyone -- Correct I thought there was a checkbox for Checkboxes to allow multiple selection; much like the Dropdown type lists. BUT - you can select multiple checkboxes, by default. John Seitz ESPN

Maybe, I am mis-understanding your question. I have attached multi-select that I am using in my custom form. Are you saying, your version of Workfront does not have this function/ability? Benetta Perry APS

Sort of -- The functionality of multi-select with checkboxes is present. But in the editor there was a box to select if you wanted multiselect. thank you John Seitz ESPN
