    Allow unchecked and checked items on checkbox field to be displayed in submission

    Asked by amccausland on December 20, 2016 at 01:58 AM
    display both checked and unchecked options in the results? Then a user can see what has been selected and what has not... or how complete a checklist is.

    Perhaps you can try using the Matrix field instead? That allows you to display the items that were not checked to the user.


    This is how it looks like in the submission:


    Also, the default check box field does not show data as "checked", instead they display the option selected. I believe the Matrix field would fit what you are looking for.

    Let us know if that works.
