    Please try a User Contributed Dropdown widget. Users will be able to add their own options to that Dropdown.

    Thank you.

    Hello Mike,

    With this widget the problem is that next time another customer use the form it will show the last option added, So is it possible to don't save the new option ?

    I believe in the case of this widget it will save the suggested option. I will forward a feature request to our developers so they consider the implementation of an option "other" for the dropdown.

    You will be contacted via this thread once they have an update on this matter.

    Let us know if we can assist you.
