    Thanks for the effort. Very helpful as usual.


    I just would like to add, we do not have other option for check boxes yet. However, we do have a workaround.

    Simly add, other option on the check box field and add a separate text box labeled "Other". After that, create a  condition that shows the other text box when other option is selected. 

    Example: http://form.jotform.com/form/20513309877

    Let us know if you need further clarifications. Thanks!
