At the end of last year Zendesk began offering Multi-Select Fields with in tickets. This is a ticket field that gives you the option to choose multiple values from a list. This feature was much needed since sometimes one answer is not enough and this allows you to be much more precise.

Everyone can create a multi-select ticket field!

Very similar to creating a drop-down fields, getting started with multi-select fields is simple and can be created by admins when building tickets and support request forms. They can also be created and modified by your developers through the API.
