    I have created a matrix with 4 rows and 2 columns.

     

    My 4 rows are: 

    Math Clas Row 1

    Physics Class Row 2 

    Language Class Row 3

    Biology Class Row 4

     

    My 2 columns options are;  

    First choice class (column 1)

    Backup choice class (column 2) 

     

    For each of the above 4 options, I can only choose one column option - my first column choice. Then if my first column choice is not available, then I select a second choice from the 4 option rows which becomes my second (backup) column choice.

     

    At present, I can only set a requirement that at least one choice is selected from one of the two columns for EVERY row so in the end I have 4 choices from column 1 or 2 for EACH row of four rows.

    But what I really require is that people can only click on maximum of 2 choices - first choice from the 4 rows (represented in column 1) and second choice (backup choice) from the 4 rows , represente din column 2.

     

    Please HELP :))

     

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    You may consider using the reverse method?. Move "Rows" options to "Columns" and Vice Versa.

    Example: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/33124034317947

    OR, use Radio button fields and use the values from your rows as the options. See example above.

    What can you say? Please let us know.

    Thanks
