    Is it possible to allow duplicate items in a Multi Select?   If it is not, will that feature be included?  

    Here is my use case.

    I want to create a Route of Flight option that will allow people to select airports they have been to on a trip.  They can visit the same airport multiple time on the same trip.

    The following is a valid route of flight:

    AUS, HYI, AUS, T74, AUS

    Out of the box, once the user selects AUS the first time, it is no longer an option.

    Any suggestions on how to make this work?

    No, the Kendo UI multiselect won't allow you to select the same item multiple times. The multiselect uses under the hood a <select multiple> which also doesn't allow selecting the same item multiple times. A possible solution is to have two items e.g. AUS (departure) and AUS (arrival).

    You may consider opening a new feature request in our feedback portal. This will allow us to track the user interest in this feature and prioritise accordingly.
