Sometimes we have to multiple options for the same field at forms. I recommend that, it should be included to Field Types.
Use case: I would like to furnish employee information, I just have to select multiple options in “Languages Known” by him. A simple checkbox will not work here, because there is not necessary that he only knows 2 languages, sometimes employees knows many languages and are volatile. Also, there is not necessary that another employee know exactly same defined languages. As per requirement, can be added to language_known doctype.
I’m talking about something like this example mentioned here: https://silviomoreto.github.io/bootstrap-select/examples/#placeholder But if not listed the language, can add there instant(can be achieved by doctypes). At example, desire is Multiple instead of Standard.
Oh, My question exactly same like we select topics while creating a new one, at discourse platform(https://discuss.erpnext.com/) as the following screenshot:
Any guidance if this can be achieved directly through GUI or custom script? But, this will only resolve my issue, why we should not add it to existing field types?
