    Is it possible to save the changes made on a multi-select field onto another field? 
    I only need to track if certain choices in a multi-select field have been checked off. 

    For example: 

    Before
    Field A (multi-select)                   Field B
    - apples - oranges - bananas

    After
    Field A (multi-select)                   Field B     - apples                                -oranges     - bananas 

    *After the user deselects 'oranges' in Field A, changes should appear on Field B. 


    Any help is appreciated, 
    Thank you

    How many options are in the multi-select field?  You might be able to use a formula text field to evaluate it.

    What is your use case?  If I knew what your process was and desired outcome, I might be able to help you get that with a different approach.

    $("#_fid_57").change(function(){
      $("#_fid_58").val($(this).val());
    })

    _fid_57 - Field A (multi select text)
    _fid_58 -  Field B (text field)

    Replace the fid with your fid , paste the code page and using IOL technique call the page 

    tested its working !! 



    Please find the below screen shots :)

    Added apples and grapes 


    removed grapes in field A , automatically removed from Field B too



    I hope this will solve your issue !!!
