    Are your referring to this form - https://www.jotform.us/form/82787176197171? I checked the form and some of your questions were not set as required.

    The question should have an asterisk (*) at the end of the question.

    Could you please clarify which fields are submitting without filling?

    I checked the form and all fields are triggered when empty (all required fields):

    Hi Nic. I went through the form to test it and clicked most boxes but left
    a random few unchecked. I then hit submit and
    when I received the form in
    my email I also noticed the signature box was missing
    . Can you test the
    form?

    Hi Nic. I had some more time to look at the form. I completed everything
    but left 1 box unchecked. It looks like as long as something is checked in
    each section it will go through. I need all boxes in each section to be
    checked before allowing submission.

    The multiple-choice field is considered one so if you set it as required, it can be submitted even if the user only selected one option. The workaround for this is to enable the calculation values to your multiple choice fields.

    Demo Form: https://form.jotform.com/90566640259968

    In my demo form I have set the calculation values in number 1 to 15. (Question 1 = 1, Question 2 = 2 ....etc.)

    Then add form calculation widget to total the selected option in your questions.

    Add a condition that if the total equals to 120 (all options are selected) then show submit button.

    You can clone the demo form to know how it was done: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    Give it a try and let us know how it goes.
