    How update checkbox from values of initial checkbox

    Asked by antoine.bertholus on May 11, 2017 at 04:20 AM


    I would like to update a checkbox or mutilple choice box according to an initial checkbox.

    For example i would have in the first checkbox a list of person. The submitter will check the persons who knows. I would like that selection appear in the second multiple choice box. That is possible?

    Best wishes

    Yes, that is possible. All you need to do is to set up a conditional logic on your form to show fields base on the input. Please refer to this guide: How to Show or Hide Fields Base on User's Answer.

    Please see the example below:

    1. Add the Initial Checkbox on your form.

    2. Add the condition to show the checkboxes base from the selected option.

     Here's the result:
