Hi,

I read in another tread that the ability to select multiple items in a dropdown list was in development. Does anyone know if that is available now?

    Hi Silvia,

    Unfortunately, it isn't possible yet. A possible workaround could be to use the Google Form integration or similar.

    I hope this helps you!

  • I opted for creating several columns with a Check boxes.

    Thank you. =)

  • Multiple selections in a field are something I need for assigning multiple people or resources.  The checkbox works for a temporary solution, but it doesn't look as elegant as a multi-selection would.

    Hi Dianne,

    I don't know if you're aware that it's possible now to have multiple contacts in a contact column. Did you know? Does it help?

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    I hope this helps you!

    Have a fantastic week!

  • I use the Google form integration for this. Works very well.



    I also change the form theme so it is close in appearance to a Smartsheet webform and the crews don't notice the difference :)



    Information is transferred across in the format I want and I can use the Alerts & Notifications in Smartsheet to keep everyone informed of the updates.

  • I've submitted this as a Product Enhancement Request, as well. This is a very straight-forward feature. We can see they have the capability to offer it because it's almost identical to the functionality of the Contact List column type.

  • I also need this feature.  It seems to have been on the roadmap for a long time.  Does anyone know when this might be available?

    Yep, would be a nice addition. Is there a way to vote-up this or other suggestions? (aside from "liking" this post)

  • What's the latest update on this functionality?

    Also interested in an update...

  • Need this - like today! :)

    Also interested in an update.  

  • I haven't even officially started using Smartsheet and I already want this. Huge limitation for something that claims to be so robust.

  • I, too, would love an update the ability to multi-select dropdown list items. Works great in the multiple contacts field. Is this currently on the roadmap?
