hey all, 

 

i am in the process of creating a form for jobsite management to use when tracking force account work. i pretty much have everything but ive seem to hit a roadblock. i have a couple dropdown lists and i want to have 3 fixed selections and the option for custom entry just incase its needed. so for example dropdown list 1 =  employee classification: and the options are N/A, Journeyman, Apprentice. i want these 3 options to be fixed values which is easy but i would also like a 4th selection added called custom and when this is selected the user is able to input custom text.  any suggestions are much appreciated.

 

Thank you

One way to to use the "Custom..." entry is to make a custom entry field visible when it's selected, and possibly some label text.

Here's an article on hiding and showing fields:
