A multi-select column is ideal if you want to assign your rows in a column several options from a list of options to be defined. The options are given colorful labels that you can use to label your records and make tables clear, for example, by filtering for specific options.

Adding options to a multi-selection column works in the same way as for a single-selection column. You can add new options in several ways. Learn all about it in the separate article Adding options to a single-selection column.
Currently, 24 colors are available to visually highlight the respective options.
Set default value
When creating a multiple selection column, unlike the single selection column, you do not have the option to set a default value.
Multiple selection or link column?
If you wish to be able to store additional information for each selection option, you should consider converting the multiple selection column into a link column. Then you can create a complete record for each option in a separate table.
Changing the order of multiple selection options
The order of the multiple selection options can be adjusted in the same way as for a single selection column. You can find detailed instructions here.
