Appending information into multi-select fields (instead of overwriting)

Tim Posted: 2018-09-27 08:48

We use many custom fields and multiple select fields but we only have the ability to overwrite data when we import new records.

What would be really useful is to have the ability to append data to pre-existing data in fields without having to export, manipulate in excel and re-import (which can and has led to error).

This would also be useful when merging records. At the moment, we only have the option to choose one record or another but actually, being able to select both.

Is this possible to develop?

Hi Tim, 


I hope you are well. 


Yes, it would be possible to develop this. I have raised this enhancement with our Engineers, and hopefully it will be addressed in a future release. 


Kind Regards,
