Multi-selection for "Option" Field in CMS

Can you either add multi-selection ability to the option field in CMS or a seperate checkbox field?

I know you can use multi-reference to get around this but I shouldn't need to create a database for something that will only be referenced by the current database.

    Annoying to spend a colleciton on a simple multi-reference, and manually adjust sitemap, because collection pages are generated as a result

    A bit surprising shortcoming. Would be very nice to have this.

    this is a must.... what if you have the need for 6 option fields in which multiple options are required? mutli ref wouldbn't work because of the max 5 multi ref limitation... I am currently using 18 switch fields instead of 6 option field with multiple choice to solve this....

    There are so many cases where I dont think its beneficial to ad a new collection so that I can use multi-reference. And also, since Im only able to nest 1 collection list per page, thats also an issue using that function compared to just have a multi-selection option field.

    I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention +1
    Hope to see this feature added soon.

    Agreed. Improving the functionality of the Option field would be super valuable.

    • Manually drag to sort Options

    • Allow for multiple Options to be selected

    +1 This would save having to use reference fields unnecessarily.

    Agreed. This would also help with CSV importing where you want multiple inputs displayed. Especially since multi-reference is not supported for CSV import. This makes managing and importing large collections PAINFUL.

    I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention.

    This multi-reference field workaround is a big pain.

    The limit of 5 multi-reference fields makes the problem worse.

    The worst part:  You can't reorder options (on the Option field, or your collection items)
