    Is it possible to group multiple checkbox options?

    Asked by andraspal on July 04, 2017 at 05:15 AM

    I can do it in the  dropdown field by using [[group name]] but checkboxes don't seem to have this option. Any solutions?

    Unfortunately, the drop down field behaves differently than the check box, the check box field will display the options and it is group by the field itself, so there is no need to group it in the same way like the drop down field.


    If you want to perhaps group the check boxes in a drop down field, then you can try the Checkbox in Dropdown widget. You can follow this guide on how to add widgets on your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form

    I hope that helps.
