    Is there a way to select or deselect the radio button options of the Matrix all at once?

    Asked by treichert on September 10, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    I have a form that has multiple matrix on it.  Each matrix has four options for each line.  If a person were to know that all the answers for the matrix were the same, ie "YES" can we just have one radio button in each matrix to automatically select "YES" in the subsequent 15 lines?

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Are you refering to an option like "Select all/Deselect all"? Actually, that's not possible with our Matrix feature. However I have forwarded a feautre request to our dev team so that they can consider if it's possible to implement this fueature to our Matrix or not. 

    We can't promise anything, however if our dev team has available information about this implementation you will get the update via this thread.

    Hi my forms have matrix questions. This form is designed to receive roster requests from staff. Often they will make a mistake and select the wrong radio button. 

    It is all well and good if it is the right row and wrong column. However we run into strife when they are in the wrong row. Neither does it allow the user to delete/remove the choice nor does it allow us to change it when we try and use the edit form feature. Is there any thing that can be done?
