    I would like to make the radio buttons "unselectable" after they have been selected for non required fields. Is this possible?

    Thanks,

    You can disable/enable fields based on your user's response. Please refer to the guide below.

    Please give it a try and let us know if that could work for you.

    Hi, Thanks for your reply. I am not concerned with disabling the entire form or individual fields on the form, my question is specific to the radio buttons.

    Currently if a radio button is selected (intentionally or accidentally) by someone filling out the form, that person cannot deselect that button. This person can only select another radio button in the same group. This function works fine if it is a required field where some kind of selection has to be made in order to submit the form, but what if it is not a required field? What if this person does not want to select any of the options? What can they do?

    Thanks,

    Yes, if the radio button is clicked, there is no way to clear the selection. The other option for you is to use a checkbox and make it look like a radio button.

    Please check this demo form: https://form.jotform.com/93173268388974

    You can set a maximum and minimum entry as well so they can only choose one option:

    OK I think this will work fine.

    Thank You,
