How do you add a custom field that allows multiple selections (e.g. checkbox or multi-select drop-down)?

Hi there,

I'm editing my project and would like to add a new custom field which allows users to select multiple options. For example, an issue might relate to more than one communication channel (e.g. mobile app, online, email etc), not just one, and I'd like the user to be able to select all the options that apply. I was thinking a drop-down menu that allows multiple selections (not just one) would be ideal for this (e.g. code below)
<select multiple>
  <option value="online">Online</option>
  <option value="mobile">Mobile app</option>
  <option value="SMS">SMS</option>
  <option value="email">Email</option>
</select> 
In addition to this, as the manager of the workstack, I would like to be able to see how many issues relate to each communication channel (e.g. Online: 5, Mobile app: 2, Email: 12 etc). on the homepage of the project, alongside things like Status, Priority and Type.

I'm new to bugnet - is there a plugin that does this or another way to implement? I find it hard to believe that I'm the first person to want such a feature, but have had no luck finding anything that already exists.

Many thanks!
