    I redid my multiple choice checklist and I still can't add text behind the checkbox. You suggested I could in a previous answer to this same problem. I need the user to be able to add their own text behind the checkbox. How can I accomplish this? I want the checkbox and then they add their own text. So basically I need a checkbox like in multiple choice and a short answer field for them to type in after they check the box.

    With the multiplce-choice field, you can add one field that the user can fill in theirself:

    1614651034_603d9e9a38944_multiplechoice.To do this, open the field settings, and select "Options" tab. There, set the "display other options" to ON.
    This will allow the user to write their own text to the choice.

    If you want to create more fields for the user to write freely than just one, I would suggest using a Configurable List Widget instead, as it will allow you to enter multiple text-entry fields.
    Please refer to our guide on how to set up the widget: How-to-set-up-the-configurable-list-widget
