    How can I get multiple "other" fields

    Asked by caseyward8 on May 06, 2016 at 11:33 PM

    In my form, I have a list of sports for the user to select. I turned on the feature for users to add in an "other" and to type in a different sport. But I need multiple other text boxes in case they want to type in more than one sport. Can I get it so when they click the first other box then a second one shows up? and then if they click the 2nd one then a 3rd, and so on?

    The 'Other' option for Checkbox and Radio option fields can only be set for 1 only. So you cannot use those fields for such purpose.

    BUT I think what will work much better is using multiple entry widget.

    I recommend checking on Field Multiplier widget for your requirement.
