    You can do that by activating the Allow Multiple function in the drop down field. Here's a guide:

    In the Form Builder, click Allow Multiple button to turn it ON or OFF. Just press shift + click to select another choice.

    Also, here's my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/61905086831963

    I also added two widget in my demo form. The name of the widget is Configurable List and Checkbox in Dropdown. Here's how to add a widget:
