How to create an 'Other...' option

A common scenario inside forms is the case of an 'Other...' option as part of a list of options, giving the respondent the possibility to enter a missing option. Let's see how to achieve this.


The concept

A branch for an 'Other' option.

The idea is to use a simple branch based on a match on the 'Other' option. In case a respondent selects that option, a follow-up question is shown. In most cases this will be a text input field, so the respondent can enter its own answer.
