    This wasted over an hour of my time. If you have a multi-select with an "other" option at the end, then the webhook value of this field is an array UNLESS the user checks "other" in which case the webhook value is a map. This is SO annoying - why would you do this!? Why can't you just have it be one type in all cases?

    I was able to replicate that. My first test without other outputs an array, then the next one with other changes the type to map showing key/value pairs.

    I'm not really sure why it was designed this way and I also agree with you on that, it should be the same type in all cases. I have now escalated this to our developers. Once we have an update, we'll inform you here.
