    Setting up checkboxes and allowing a comment in there as well

    Asked by nant on March 13, 2014 at 04:25 PM

    Hi there:

    We are trying to have checkboxes set up, but then below that allowing people to make a comment.

    I'm not seeing that option with the checkbox feature. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks much,

    Susan Lucibello

    Hello Susan,

    Activating the "allow other" on checkboxes will give you that flexibility.

    Unless you wanted the user to edit all the checkbox option texts - in which case we do not have a feature that does that yet.

    What kind of workflow did you have in mind? Because with the smart forms - you can show/hide textboxes based on the checkbox selection.

    Let us know if this helps.
