Is it possible to save the changes made on a multi-select field onto another field? 
I only need to track if certain choices in a multi-select field have been checked off. 

For example: 

Before
Field A (multi-select)                   Field B
- apples - oranges - bananas

After
Field A (multi-select)                   Field B
   - apples                                -oranges
   - bananas 

*After the user deselects 'oranges' in Field A, changes should appear on Field B. 


Any help is appreciated, 
Thank you

How many options are in the multi-select field?  You might be able to use a formula text field to evaluate it.

What is your use case?  If I knew what your process was and desired outcome, I might be able to help you get that with a different approach.

$("#_fid_57").change(function(){
  $("#_fid_58").val($(this).val());
})

_fid_57 - Field A (multi select text)
_fid_58 -  Field B (text field)

Replace the fid with your fid , paste the code page and using IOL technique call the page 

tested its working !! 



Please find the below screen shots :)

Added apples and grapes 


removed grapes in field A , automatically removed from Field B too



I hope this will solve your issue !!!
