    Custom text for Other box?

    Asked by webtools@heart.org on June 14, 2013 at 12:38 PM



    When you choose the option to have an "Other" option in a list of checkboxes, is there a way to edit the text to say something different than "Other"? Ex) Other Conference

    Hi, Unfortunately there is no way to edit that text  "Other" in the check box with in JotForm Editor. But you might be able to change that if you are using the form soruce code

    Let us know if you have any further clarification.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your response on this one!  We'll make the changes using the source code. Just for the record, I think this would be a great option to have in the future, so perhaps somewhere down the line it could be a possible enhancement. 


    Thanks again!
