The multiselect option in a dropdown field allows you to select multiple options or answers to a question. A questionnaire contains two fields where you can use the multiselect option. These questionnaire fields are:
- A multiple choice field
- A relationship field
We will shortly explain how these two fields will work with the multiselect dropdown menu.
1. You can create a multiselect multiple choice field as follows:
In the Admin menu, you select the questionnaire on which you would like to create a multiple choice field. There, you click on add field.
Choose the Type option dropdown / multiple choice.
In this menu, you can fill in all the fields you need. The field "possible values" shows you which values will be visible in BlueDolphin (also for others) after you save the field
After you saved the field, and the questionnaire is linked to an object, you will find this questionnaire field in the "object" tab. It will look like this:
If you click on the multiple choice field, you can select all the options that you want to add as an answer.
Now you have successfully created a multiple choice questionnaire field.
2. You can create a multiselect Relationship field as follows:
The relationship field of a questionnaire can also be answered through a Multiselect Dropdown option. You can create a relationship questionnaire field by going the Admin menu and clicking on the object (object A) to which you want to add this field. There, you click on add field.
After this, you can choose "Relationship".
There you can enter the relationship combination that you would like to offer as an option in this questionnaire field. Here you enter the object definition of your selected object and the relationship definition that defines the connection between the object definitions.
In this case, all possible relationship combinations in your environment between objects and/or processes that have this relationship definition (for example, "used by") will be visible in the dropdown list of the relationship field of the questionnaire. This field looks like this:
If you click on these relationships manually, they will also be added as real relationships in the tenant.
Now you have successfully created a multiselect relationship field.
