Table MultiSelect feature (sponsored by Seibert Media)


Dear All,

Happy to share that Seibert Media (@Martin_Seibert) has sponsored the development of Table MultiSelect feature.

This was frequently requested by many community members as this is very intuitive and quick and results in better user experience.

Instead of a child table and ‘Add Row’ button, you can simply select multiple values in the same field.

This feature has been developed by @netchampfaris and is available in the latest develop version.

Documentation is available here

Below is the GIF showing Table MultiSelect field in action.



@Basawaraj_Savalagi when and in which version this feature will be in the master branch? Will work user permission on that type of field like on a link field?


How to add multi-select in child table, I tried but the child table is not working properly.



Table MultiSelect is working in DocType, When I tried in child table the table is not working.


Will this feature appear in v11 master. I had to switch to the develop branch to get it to appear.


new features only go into the develop branch (that is the mechanics of the ERPNext/Frappe development) and likewise they only appear in the next stable branch (v12 in this case). There are no feature backported into the current master. I guess at some point someone may come up with the idea of a backport branch, but that will require quite some coordinated community effort in order to be maintained.

From my experience thus far the Community is not well enough organized and structured yet to successfully get such a thing going (example: the initiative for LTS versions never went very far).

The current master (v11 as of now) only receives bug fixes, no new features


this feature will be available in v12
