There are many occasions when the list in the dropdown is not complete.  For example you may ask a person what their food preference are and then they add a different response (which is fine).

  • Vegetarian
  • Meat
  • Vegan

If someone writes Vegetarian but Eat Fish

You may want to allow that to be added to the list.

Please may we have a functionality that allows for new items to be added to the list?

This can be done with a checkbox similar to restrict to list items 

Under the main box, show the additional responses with a checkbox with the prompt add to dropdown list?

If we can set that up at the start that means that we can remove them later if necessary but it avoids the need to then export and then copy and paste a list afterwards.
