Multiple Select Custom Field Data in emails

Hi, I have made a custom select field where users can select more than one option using the ctrl key from a drop down,

eg. select your favourite colours: (red, blue, green, yellow) with multiple selection set to yes.



I then want the email to the contact to say:

As your favourite colours are blue, yellow now go to…



Instead, it only displays the first colour selected as

As your favourite colours are blue now go to…



Have I done something wrong? In the users details, it has saved all their colours correctly, but when inserting into the email it only shows the first one.



Any advise?



Thanks!

so far, multi-selection in custom fields doesn’t seem to be supported. Each field should have a single unique value. Unless someone else has an update I’m not aware of.

Just read that and it seems to be coming in mautic 2.2
