Hello everyone - I am trying to have it so that I can choose multiple options in a dropdown menu for a cell. Or someway that I can have a list of things in a cell. It is for tracking blog post categories. Thanks - Carlyle

    There is currently no way to do that.

    Drop down lists are only single choice columns.

    There is a discussion over it for contact list column to enable multiple selection.

    But for now it does not exists.

    you can only right several items in a free text cell and divide it somehow (comma, etc.)

    Hi,

    Good news! It's coming!

    Hi everyone, 

    I'm pleased to announce that the Multi Select Dropdown project is in development.

    The functionality Robert Meisch mentioned above (dynamically populate a drop down list from a selected range in a sheet?) is in early stages of research and we're hoping to have that out this year.

    Thank you for the passion, and thanks for the patience.

    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Best,
