Is there a way to have an "other" option in a dropdown (select one) question type where the user of the survey could either select from the dropdown or select other, to then be able to type in said value? 

I realize this is doable in the web version of Survey123, but looking for a way to do it in Connect Desktop version. 

Thank you!

In the Relevant column of the XLS form, enter an expression like the following:

selected(${question1},'other')

The value in quotes is the name (not label) from your choice list used for the question referenced

Very easy to do! All you need to do is add another text question with a dependency where it will only appear if the user select the 'Other' option from the dropdown.

Thank you for your response. How do I set it so that it is dependent on the previous entry for the dropdown?
