Update Read-Only Checkbox Field Per 4 Other Field's Values

    Asked on March 18, 2018 at 07:14 PM


    I thought I understood this correctly, but I am not able to get the desired results.


    I need a read-only checkbox field that shows the user what previous choices were made at different stages, all under one display-only field.

    See, these are my related conditions and the outcome, right now, in my example, all four checkboxes per my understanding should be checked, but only one of these rules seems to run the logical condition and take hold, and no matter what I try, when more than one of such choices needs to show up here, only the last option gets checked...


    Or if I am doing this wrong, would you please kindly guide me as to what is the best way to LATER DISPLAY such separate choices in previous steps in a single read-only element easily?

    I have since removed this as I found your nice form preview widget that took care of the need better, but I still would like to know the technical answer here.

    The reason why only one option was checked is because the field to which you were trying to pass the value was refreshed each time a new condition was triggered. 

    It is not possible to pass the values from multiple fields to a single checkbox field. I made a few tests, but this is not possible even when using "Copy Multiple Field Values", so it is good that you found a solution with Preview Before Submit widget.
