I need a way to select multiple items on a drop down list in a Nintex form. Naturraly I could just use the standard "Checkboxes" in SharePoint, but as the list of choices is fairly long, this result in a long list of checkboxes in the form, and ruin the user friendliness.
Does anyone have a clever solution to this?
