    There isn’t a way to select multiple items from a dropdown list but you could do the following to give users the ability to select multiple answers for a question:


    1. Create separate checkbox columns for each answer 

    2. When designing the Form, create a Heading/Description section divider (found under Add Field) with the Question text as either the Heading or Description. 

    3. Add each of the answer columns as fields below the section divider. 

    4. On each of the checkbox fields change the Display Type to have 'Caption to the right'. 


    ​Doing the above will simulate a multi-select option for a question.
