    Change Basic Fields

    Asked by Russell4513 on January 06, 2017 at 11:18 AM

    I accidentally created a field as a radio button instead of a check box. Now that field has 40+ conditions attached to it. Is there a way to either:

    1). Change the type of field?

    2). Copy the conditions from one field to another?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to change the type of the fields. 

    What you can to is to simply edit conditions that you have set for radio button field and apply condition for new checkbox field instead. 

    I have also inspected your form and I saw that your form only has checkbox fields, so I assume that your issue is now resolved. 

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    That is incorrect. I have a section that is radio buttons. And it has a ton of conditions attached to it. I don't want to have to go in an re-create them all. Is there a "copy/paste" function?

    It is not possible to copy the conditions from one field to the other, the only way would be update them one by one to the new field.
