    How can I create an if/then statement that would generate a text box?

    Asked by WOARSurvey on March 27, 2017 at 03:26 PM

    I am trying to create an if/when statement that would generate a text box to question, "Select which social media networks you would use as a Social Media Ambassador (you must have at least 2 public networks) and provide them".  This is a checkbox question, where the applicant can select all the option that apply. 

    What I am trying to do is create an if/then statement that says if the applicant chooses an option (checks box for website) then a text box would open so they can write the name related to the option (ability to write name of website).


    If I am not able to do this with the check boxes, can you help me to create this type of question with a different format?
