Add New Choice not an option in a Text - Multiple Choice field

I apologize if this comes up as 2nd post.  I received an error after I submitted my first.

In my newly created App I have multiple tables.  And in those multiple tables I have used the text field Text - Multiple Choice.  The settings values for those fields are...

Text - Multiple Choice field options

Input Type: From list (FYI. I have a list of items listed not in alphabetical order)

Allow users to create new choices is selected.

Display choices in alphabetical order is selected.

When I go to the table where that field is located and add a new record, that field dropdown does not give me the option <Add new Choice...>.  It only lists the items in my list non-alphabetically.

I'm seeing this happen in every table where I have a Text - Multiple Choice field and I can't seem to find a setting at the app level to control this.

Am I missing a step?

Thanks,

stu

  • Are you using the new forms or the legacy forms?

    In the new forms, Ive noticed the option to add new choice is not there. not sure if this is a bug or by design.

    Regarding the alphabetizing, that is strange. Can you post your choices? It's definitely pulling from a list and not from another field, correct?

      Hi Mike.

       

      I'm using the new forms.

       

      And I apologize.  The alphabetization is working.  The issue is just the inability to add new choices <Add New Choice...> from the dropdown.

       

      Here are some samples of some text – multiple choice fields that I have:

      A field called Inventory which includes a list of items such as:

      Apple Pencil

      Monitor

      Docking Station

      Wireless Keyboard/Mouse

       

      Allow users to create new choices is selected.

       

      A field called Inventory Location which includes a list of items such as:

      Boston

      Denver

      Irvine

      Nashville

      San Francisco

       

      Allow users to create new choices is selected.

       

      A field called Computers Available which includes a list of items such as:

      Latitude 7380

      Latitude 7390

      Precision 5560

      Surface Pro 8

      XPS 2720

       

      Allow users to create new choices is selected.

       

      Thanks,

      Stu

        I can confirm the same behavior, which would indicte a bug on the new forms. I would report it to customer service.
