Check Box v. Radio Button hybrid?

    1) Why can't you select more than one option when you use the radio button? (because the "other" option is great)

     

    2) Why CAN you select more than one check box but NOT have the "other" option??

     

    In other words, there NEEDS to be a hybrid of those two. An option that allows a user to check more than one AND allow for the "other" option where they'll write their own.

    Thanks so much. This product is fantastic.

    By definition "radio button" fields only allow one selection. What you would like is a "checkbox" field.

    This is in our todo list. Thanks.

    What is an expected ETA for the "other" option to be added to the checkbox field?  Is there a work around I could use until then?  Thanks!

    Hi colt45on

    Although I cannot state with any certainty what the ETA of this feature is, in the words of two of our users, an "awesome" workaround was recently posted by one of my learned colleagues (Albert).

    Should you require additional assistance with this or any other aspect of our product, do let us know. Our team will be happy to help you however best we can.

    Cheers

    Thank you Abajan!  I tried the "awesome" workaround and have to agree that it is pretty awesome.  It does everything I was needing. Thanks again.
