    Is it possible to have a multiple choice, and have a short text input for all ticked options?

    Do you want to show all selected options from the Multiple choice fields inside of the Short Text Entry field? If so, you can use conditional logic to pass the data from one field to another.

    Here is a demo form:

    I was hoping to have a multiple choice section, and then for each ticked box a number entry (or a text entry) for the user to enter a value corresponding to that ticked box.

    For example


    for each ticked box, i would like the user to be able to enter a number of hours corresponding to that engineering discipline. Ideally the entry space would appear alongside each ticked box for clarity

    To achieve that you will have to add multiple number fields to your form, one for each checkbox option and then potion those fields next to check box options.

    You will also have to use CSS to position the fields.

    You can also create a separate checkbox field for each of the options and enable the Other option for all fields. 

    Another possible solution is to two separate Input Table fields, one with check boxes and one with Number field and to position them in the same row.
