    Is it possible to have multiple choices and then an "other" choice that people can fill?

    Asked by socaltunaclub on January 15, 2014 at 11:00 PM

    I was using the drop down tool with multiple choices (the most common choices), but need an "other" choice that people an fill in.  If can't be done with drop down tool, is there another tool or way.

    The drop down tool does not have that feature.

    Nevertheless, You still can obtain that functionality on Check Boxes and Radio Buttons, to do so:

    Select your Check Box field or Radio Button field, and click on the Allow Other button on the Top Toolbar of the Form Builder on the Tool's Properties Category..


    This is my example form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40149050592955?
