    Okay, so basically, I need to have a mutli-select field that automatically selects certain selections based on checkboxes (cannot use form rules) and then also lets the user add in more selections manually if needed. Is this at all possible?

    Thanks guys!

    I suggest making a formula text field which will calculate the text string that you want. It can be based in checkboxes as well as several free form input fields for users to add in their extra choices, post back if you like that approach and need help with the formula.

    The formula will use the format

    LIst(", ",
    If (condition 1 , "apples"),

    If(condition 2 , "peaches"))
