    Is there a way to pupulate check list options based on responses to other questions?  I dont want to have the checkboxes checked or unchecked based on answers, I want to populate the options based on answers.  For example:


    I have several multiple choice questions for a user to select.

    I then want to have a checklist in a later part of the form that shows the items that were responded to as the checklist options.  So if the user responded to the questions as seen here.....

    then the checklist would look like this:

    But, if the user responded to the questions as seen here......

    then the checklist would look like this:

    So in other words, if a question is filled, then it will display as an option in the checklist, if a question is NOT filled, it would NOT appear as an option on the checklist.

    You can use the Show or Hide condition. It will Show or Hide a field base on the user's answer. For more information, please check this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    Will, that work for you? If you want a demo form, please let us know. Thank you.

    No, please re-read my question and example.  That is not what I am trying to do.  I am trying to have the checklist options populate based on responses to questions earlier in the form.  I do not want to hide a field, I want to hide/display a checklist option.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to dynamically populate the checklist options.

    If you add a separate checklist for each possible combination, you may then show those checklists based on selected options.
