Free text picklist

Can we create a picklist field where can pick the value from dropdown as well as type the text and save?

Hi Vipin,

Try this,
Solution 1 
1. Create an additional picklist saying other and have a text field next to it, to fill the field with the text you want.
2. Add a validation rule to make sure the text is filled when the value in the picklist is other.

If you want the value in the picklist.

Solution 2
1. Once you have the additional text field populated on the edit layout.
2. Update the text value to the picklist using a process built using process builder
Note: Make sure that the picklist is not a restricted picklist.

You can use both the solutions separately or together, depending on your requirement. But I would suggest going for solution one
as it is easier to implement, manage and gives a better look :)

Hope it helps
then what is the use of 'Restrict picklist to values defined in the value set' checkbox?
