    And while I'm asking questions about required checkboxes, it would also be extremely swell to be able to require a minimum or maximum number of checks.  :)

    Hello Robin,

    We do not have such a feature available within the Form Builder, but upon searching the web, I found a solution that might work perfectly.

    Check this webpage out to see the solution. Do note that it would only be possible to implement if you embedded using source code. That is because custom JavaScript cannot be added onto the form using the Form Builder. The codes will just get stripped out.

    So if you used script embed codes, you can just insert those Checkbox Limiter codes to make it work.

    Thanks, I'll certainly look into that, but is there any particular reason this couldn't just be added as a regular jotform feature?  :)

    Hello robinowsley,

    I have submitted a ticket to the developers for request to add the feature to their todo list.  Unfortunately, there can be no specific time frame to when this feature will be implemented as the development team is pretty busy making Jotform better.

    Once this feature is implemented, We'll let everyone know.

    Thanks and warm regards,

    Hi Robin,

    Thanks for the feedback. We are actually not closing our doors on the possibility of impementing this feature. In fact, I'm going to help you send this over to our Development Team right now so that they can evaluate the possibility of including this feature on the next upgrade. We'll let you know as soon as updates become available.

    If you have any other ideas and suggestions, please do not hesitate to share it with us. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Is this feature available yet?  I need to limit the number of checkboxes a user can select to 5 out of a possible 25.  Just wondering the status on this and if it has been implemented, where is this feature under.  Thank you!

    Hi, this feature is not yet available as it is still queued in feature request list. 

    For the meantime, if such functionality is now a must on your form, you may want to apply the suggested resolution by NeilVicente from this website. This involves using the form source code embed and applying javascript function.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need assistance applying the suggested resolution.
