Automatically add 'Other' form responses into the list of choices for that question.
Works with:
1M+
Overview
Other Etc automatically adds form response answers submitted as "Other" into to the list of choices for a question.

Whether you're using a form by yourself to improve workflow or using it with many other users, you have probably found it useful to include the "Add Other..." option for multiple choice and checkbox items. Why? Sometimes you want to have allow a response you haven't thought of already, or allow user input.

This Add-On takes this a step further and allows for automatic updating of the list of choices. When installed and turned on, this Add-On automatically adds these "Other" responses to the list of choices for a question.

Two ways you might find this useful:
1. If you're the form creator and also using this form yourself, it can save a trip back to edit mode. Using this Add-on means you don't have to manually enter new choices.
2. If you're collaborating with others, you may want future users to be able to see and select choices that other users have contributed. For instance, you might want to have a group select a venue together, or suggest best times for an activity. This Add-on allows users of the form to select from a list of choices, or select the "Other" category and suggest their own choice, then have other users see those new options.

Aren't you surprised this isn't a built-in feature?

Great addon....But please! please!! please!!! Can you provide a way to "TURN OFF" the feature that updates the options list with whatever a user writes. Because a rogue user can write anything crazy... and that 'thing' automatically reflects in the survey that other participants will now see. Thanks.

I wish I had a add-on to change the text "other" to 'Comments", and to be added to the end of each item inside a question.

crikey, that was easy! no code needed and works seamlessly into the native setup. Does everything you'd hope with no bugs: a time lag of less than 2 seconds to feed it into the form, 'submit another response' includes the new option - and - even the user using the browser backpage shows updated form! Thanks devs!

DO NOT USE unless you are OK with what someone types under "other" being added to your form. It retains what is typed, adds it to the form, and it appears to the next person completing the form as an answer to choose.
