For the Multiple Choice option I know there is a button that allows users to add their own option into the field instead of picking the pre-defined options.

We like this feature; however, we don't want our users to see these "user added options" for the next time the form is complete. Can we prevent the "user added option" from being an option in the Multiple Choice field the next time it's used?

Example:

Multiple Choice options are: Apple, Banana, Cherry, Grape

Our users needs to indicate Lemon, so they create this as their selection in the field, and saves the record.

The next user goes in and now sees: Apple, Banana, Cherry, Grape, Lemon.

No problem, just sittin' on the deck of the cottage with a beer and catching fungos.

Make a lest choice of Other.  Then have a form rule to say if choice is Other
show [Other description]
Require Other Description

Then change your name for your multiple choice field to [Fruit Selected] and create a new formula field called [Fruit] which will calculate to either the [Other Description] or the [Fruit Selected].
