How to make an alias for different options in MultiSelect Input?

Explorer

For instance, I have ALL, PROGA and PROGB as the available choices for the field Program.

How can I make it display as ALL, FunctionA and FunctionB instead?

I'm not sure I understand the problem exactly, but for each choice there should be 2 options to fill out in the multi-select dropdown - a name and a value. Name would be what is displayed to the user in the dropdown and value would be what is actually stored in the token/field created by the input.

So you could make the name "FunctionA" and value "PROGA". That would be for a static list but a dynamic list would be similar - using "field for label" as what's displayed to the user and "field for value" as what's stored in the token.

I'm not sure if that answers your question but feel free to provide more detail if not.
