    With a radio button field, can people select multiple choices instead of just one?

    Asked by survivalkids on February 27, 2014 at 04:42 PM

    I need to make either a dropdown, radio button or check box field where people can select multiple choices. How do I do this?

    This can not be done with the radio button option however if you go to the top left side of the screen there is a menu with the top option being 'FORM OPTIONS' click on this heading and a dropdown menu of options will appear.  Click and drag the 'checkbox' option to the section of the form you want it to appear in and drop it in.


    Hope that helped! If it did please 'Like' and rate me on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/einsteinwebdesignpage

    Sorry to say, but that is not possible with radio button. Radio buttons are for one choice answers only. So, instead of using radio button, I would suggest you to use checkbox field as Check boxes are for multiple choices.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
