    Hey, I am running a tennis course for children ages 6-13, and I’ve created an excel sheet to check their medical history. It will be filled out by their parents, and I want to add a checkbox if that particular medical condition applies to the child other than manually writing yes or no. I’d really appreciate if you could help me with that.

    There is a checkbox option in Excel under the Insert section. 

    It’s also possible to create an online form using Jotform with many additional features. Not only you can simply create the form and send it to the parents for them to fill out but also you can easily add a checkbox widget on your form and define it according to your needs. 

    You mentioned that the course is for children so you need the parent’s consent. I believe just adding a checkbox which could be ticked by anyone is not the safest route to take. You need to make sure the form is filled out by the parent or legal guardian. Jotform enables you to add many widgets to your forms, and in this case, the Signature Widget could be beneficiary for you. You can collect the information you need about the course attendees, their parents and receive the parent’s signature in just one form. There are also many other useful features you can use, so make sure to check out Jotform Features.

    Let me show you how you can add a checkbox on your form using Jotform:

    On your form editing page, click on Add Form Element and then go to Widgets. Once you are in the Widget section, you can use the search bar to find the Checklist Widget. Simply click on the Checklist and you are set!
