    I have created a form using your system and would like to use a list box control and i can't find it in your optons.

    Asked by msendze on March 29, 2011 at 09:18 PM

    So I have a field  called Choose Genres/categories with 30 options in the drop down list:




    Non Fiction


    I would like to give the possibility of choosing at most 3-5 genres/categories for a match of a book.

    How can i accomplish this?

    This can be accomplished by inserting a Check Box field in your form. You can find this tool under the Form Tools options.


    You can add as many options you would like for your Check Box field by clicking on Add New Option.


    You can also set your Check Box fields to spread on any number of columns you prefer, giving you more control on how your Choose Genre/Categories options look.

    Hope this helps. If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know. Thank you for using Jotform.
