    How can I change a radio button field to a checkbox field?

    Asked by gwapconsulting on March 05, 2014 at 02:47 PM

    I want to know if there is an easy way to change a radio button field to a checkbox field without having to re-do all the inputs?  For instance, I've used systems where if you change your mind on the type of field you can easily change it.

     

    Thanks.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It is not possible to change the field types in our form builder, but you can easily copy Radio Box option values and paste them into Check Box options.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    I don't know how but i managed to accidentally convert six radio box fields to check box fields when i added a check box just below them - not sure how or what i did but i just had to manually re-do them all as radio boxes and found this searching for how to convert them back.
