dropdown multiselect WITH checkboxes (like ID/Status)

I want to make a new field of the same type as the ACT! 2011 standard ID/Status field - that is, a dropdown with mutliselect capability but also with CHECKBOXES.

I can create a multiselect dropdown field, but multiselect and checkbox (which I think is "YES/NO" option in layout seem to be mutually exclusive.

How do I create such a new field with my own categories, as a YES/NO multiselect dropdown?

Hope somebody can help!

Many thanks

Re: dropdown multiselect WITH checkboxes (like ID/Status)

You mean you want the choices to be just YES/NO, or you want the choices in the dropdown to represent the "choice of" Y/N?  

 

If the former, just create a new Picklist with two values - YES and NO, then assign this picklist to the new field.

 

If the latter, by default a check in a choice box represents YES, unchecked represents NO.  Adding a Yes or No value to a check is redundant.

If you want like ID/Status, that's Multi-select (not checkbox) ... you also need to add a drop-down
