    How can I add "Other" text field for the dropdown? I want to add "Other" option into the dropdown menu and get the details instead of "Other" with a text area.

    Hi Yavuzselcan,

    Thank you for contacting Support.

    I'm afraid the "Other" option is only available in Single Choice (Radio Button) and Multiple Choice (Checkbox) fields.


    The Dropdown field doesn't have this option. What it has is an option to show a text in the empty option.


    Since a Dropdown only allows 1 selection by default, why not change your Dropdown fields into Single Choice (Radio Button) fields? That way, you can take advantage of the "Other" option.

    I hope this helps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
