    Thanks for contacting us.

    I cloned your form and tried to made the changes without any problem. Please watch this video:


    If you have selected one option already, undo it, save your form and then select it again and save your form as I show you in the video:

    Here is my form: https://www.jotform.com/form/32363989102962

    As you can see there's one Check Box selected by default.

    If that method still does not work for you, there's a nother way you can select a checkbox option by default:
