d) Offer an ‘Other’ text box for when the choice is unavailable in the Select
e) Any time someone uses Other… add it to the default choices, add it as the value in the Select field, clear the Other field (using a ‘save’ filter)
I did this very thing for a horse race track website and it works beautifully (see attached images). The user chooses who he feels will win the races. To save him time, he chooses the horse from the drop-down (which pulls its values direct from a field in an Option Page)… but uses the “Other” text box when needed. My logic also makes sure there are no duplicates when he uses the “Other” box.
If this works for you, please mark as closed, or reach out if you need further help!
