    I have created a drop down box with options and want to add in a comment section to the drop down box

    Asked by atechsupport on February 22, 2017 at 12:25 PM


    I have created a drop down box with numerous options

    I have also put 'Other' at the bottom, but for this 'Other' option, I would like the user to be able to type in this box so they can specify 'other'


    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Unfortunately, you can't put a comment box in the Dropdown menu field. However, you can set a condition where a comment box will appear after choosing an answer in the Dropdown menu field.

    Here's my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/70388922847974

    You can clone my demo form to check the conditions. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Here's a screenshot of my show and hide condition:

    If you need a guide how I created the demo form, please contact us again. Thank you.
