How to change drop down list to multiple select?

Hello everybody,

I have a task to change one drop down list to multiple select (in Clients -> Customers module). I’ve found on Studio Module builder all the fields and its’ types, but I don’t have possibility to change the type of each field (I can only change the list of it’s values).

I have Suite CRM v.7.10.5
Sugar v.6.5.25 (build 344)

In Admin / Dropdown editor you change the lists.

In Admin / Studio / [module] / Fields you can add a field and choose field type, namely “Multiselect”. Don’t forget to add the new field to at least one of the views (Edit view, Detail view, List view) afterwards.

To make the dropdown list to multi-select, You need to go to vardef file.

Change type from

type=>'enum' to type=>'multienum'

and repair and rebuild.
