A multi-select drop-down list lets you select more than one entry from the list. Such lists are designated with a "double-image" drop-down button:


When you click the button, MainBoss opens a window where you can select elements from the list. To select more than one list element, you use the standard Windows methods of selection:

When you select multiple elements in a list, the result depends on the context. If, for example, you're in the Assignees section of a work order and you select multiple assignees, all the people you select will be assigned to the work order. If you're in the Security Roles section of a user record, the user will be given all the security roles that you select.

Right-Clicking: When looking at a multi-selection list, you can right-click on the list to get a menu of useful actions that can be performed. For example, the menu gives you the option of checkmarking all the entries in the list or blanking them out. With long lists, we recommend that you click the "..." button to get a selection window, then right-click on the list in the window to select the entries you want.
