Auto complete function for multi select questions

Is it possible to use the autocomplete function for a select multiple question. I have a long list of users who will be carrying out inspections and often together so need them to be able to start typing their names and select multiple names from the list rather than scrolling down a long list to select multiple names.

Hi @LouiseHarris1  The autocomplete appearance is not available for select_multiple because it would lead into incorrect data entry and/or confusion. Lets pretend the user selects a couple of options that later get hidden as the user changes the search text: Should these hidden options remain marked or not? In some cases yes, in others not... To avoid confusion, autocomplete is only available with select_one.
