In Interface, user can only choose a value that already exists in a single select field.

In some use-cases, I should be able to add a new value (as it exists when creating from the "Data" interface)

It would be nice to have this option enable or not in the field parameters, when configuring the form in Interface.

Good idea! As a workaround, you could use single-select linked records instead of the single-select field.

I agree ... this is an absolute requirement.

I don't quite understand the work around yet but I will play around a bit more. 

I still can't figure out the work around ... does someone have a link or post on how to make this work?
Very much appreciate the helpful tips around here! Thank-you all!

I would also add, adding the capabilities in single select field to add values even if you're not "creator". It provides way to much rights for such a little capability.

You can do it, look under at permissions' last row

Hello Gilles,

Could you please a bit more precise, where is this "permission" setting ? any screenshot would be great.

I've looked at the interface field settings, no such category.

If this is right, this would be a great news. Thanks for sharing.

Was not logged in so no way to upload smtgh.

Be sure to make the interface field Editable to have the option appears at the very bottom

Not sure if it is on my side but i cannot see any images uploaded in any posts here. Hope you can. Once more, set the field to editable to have the option displayed.

Hello Gilles,

OK i see your point / you can add new options if you are opening an existing record from interfaces by setting the field "editable" and select "Allow users to add new options".

But the whole discussion, maybe this was not clear, is about interface with forms to create new record - in this cas there is no setting to allow user to add new options in single or multiselect list of options, which forces the admin to suggest in advance all possible cases, and that is really not possible in some common questions/cases.
