    ..I think that your choices are to redesign to the app to make this  Many to many relationships or else to have a 2nd Multi select field.

    I suggest redesigning the app to allow the user to quick select multiple unlimited selections from an unlimited number of choices.
    I think that you are trying to use the using the multi select field type for purposes it was not design for as a short cut to avoid making a many to many relationships.

    If you contact me directly i can give you a demo of what the user experience would be.  part is you reticence may be that selecting a lot of choices off a many to many relationships is too slow, but I can demo to you a native alternative.

    I am using the app to track recruitment of providers for a network submission. I have the counties as the multi-select drop down and all 102 counties of Illinois listed. I need to report on-1- for the providers being recruited what counties they serve, and most serve multiple counties2- how many provider types by county are contracted. would the many to many relationship solve for this?
