    I need to develop a patient intake form where the client has to select their main symptom. I have 47 symptoms for them to choose from. Is there a limit of choices with jotform? What type of question format would you suggest that I use? thank you.

    You can add as many options as you want as multiple choice answer. If they need to select only one out of all options I would recommend Single Choice type of question ( radio button ). If they are allowed to select one or more I would recommend Multiple Choice ( check box ).

    You can always set a limit for multiple choice options. For this purpose please have a look at the following link: 

    Please feel free to ask any further questions.

    Thank you Onur, I was assessing Typeform but the 26-choice limit was a problem for us.

    Is it possible to try your product for suitability before taking out a subscription?

    Do you have a recommended template that makes your UI and UX similar to the look of the default style of Typeform? (I don't want to sound impertinent but I ask as this was already approved by the clinic as suitable for use).

    Thanks again
