Removing Multiple Select Options Without Deleting Data in Cells

#1

Wondering if this is possible? I have about 10 multiple select options in a column. Several of them are no longer relevant, but I still need the historical data in the column. Is there a way to remove items from multiple select while maintaining the data in the cells?

I don’t believe this is possible. Removing an option from a Multiple Select field removes all instances where that option was chosen, thereby losing your history. The data you see in a field is dependent upon the field type and its designed operation. You can’t separate the two.

Can you delete an option in multiple select field type at all? I have some incorrect option and want to remove them completely.

Absolutely! If it’s an option that’s not going to be used, it can be removed by clicking on the X to the right of the option’s name when editing the field properties.
