    Thanks for asking. This can be accomplished by adding a textbox to the form and setting a condition to show it only when "Other" is selected in the dropdown, as in this clone whose condition is shown below:

    In the clone, CSS was injected to hide the label of the textbox. 

    If you would like further help with this, please let us know.
