Selecting multiple items from a pick list

custom fields settings

We have now introduced the ability to choose if pick lists allow multiple selections and then assign them to a Custom Field. Whereas before you were only able to select one, now giving you the option to create fully customised pick lists as Custom Fields.

We believe that by giving our customers this option, it will further push our aim of providing a fully tailored solution for businesses.
