Understand multi select field

Understand multi select field

The  Multi Select  field enables your users to select one or more values from a predefined set of choices that are displayed in a dropdown menu.

When to use this field?

You may consider the following pointers to determine when to use a multi select field:
  • Opt to use a multi select field if the data that you want to enable your users to enter spans a defined set of choices, and one or more of these choices can be present per entry (or record)
  • The  checkbox  field also enables your users to select one or more from the predefined set of choices. Where the multi select and checkbox fields differ is the way the choices are displayed when your users access them on a web-browser: in a dropdown menu and as checkboxes, respectively. (They look the same when accessed from a phone or tablet) 
  • If you want to enable your users to select a single value, you must opt to adding a  drop down  or  radio  field to your form
  • If you want to create a dynamic picklist that allows your users to select multiple values, then you must opt to using a multi-select lookup field

Character limits

A choice displayed by the multi select field contains up to 255 characters.
