Multi-Select Custom Fields

You can now store multiple values in a single Custom Field in Close!

Custom Fields have been a powerful feature in Close for a long time, but they'd had one significant limitation โ€“ you could only store a single value in a single Custom Field. As of today, this is no longer true! Head over to the Customizations Settings and convert your single-value fields by changing their type from "Choices (single)" to "Choices (multiple)" or from "User (single)" to "User (multiple)".
