    Feature Request: Add "Allow Other" to drop-downs

    Asked by SunbridgeInstitute on December 15, 2015 at 10:29 AM

    I know that you have a User-Contributed Drop-down widget, but here is why I would love to have "Allow Other" to be added to the primary drop-down tool:

    1-the primary bullet tool and the primary checkbox tool both have "Allow Other" and it is confusing to remember which ones have it and which don't. It would be nicer if they were all consistent.

    2-the widget is limited and I like the options available in the primary tool much better, plus it matches the rest of my form better.

    Thank you for considering it!

    I will forward this request to our developers to have a look.  Though I cannot guarantee that the "Allow Other" option will be added for drop-downs, it will at least be considered.  We will update you here in this thread if there is any news regarding your request.
