Is it possible to mix poll types as I have a customer who has a multiple choice selection with the last option being Other and wants to be free text answer?

Then, we’d create the free text saying something like “If you selected ‘Other’, please add a comment’. That way, only participants who chose ‘other’ would put their answer for the second question.
