"Other, please specify" option to add text in dropdown list from intake form


I have created a form in Smartsheet and one of the required fields has a dropdown list. I need an option such as "other, please specify." How can I keep this in the dropdown list and have the ability for the submitter to add text to specify what other is?

    Flip the switch on the dropdown column property that says 'Restrict to list values only'. Then just add a description somewhere using the column name or form items.
